Lately, it is hard to feel optimistic about the state of our country, and I feel as though there is cause for concern. Now is the optimal time to take a look at the things we believe, assess whether they are true, and be open to the possibility that they may not be.

So in this episode, I will be sharing my thoughts on limiting beliefs, as well as how I have learned to pivot my mindset and values to focus more on the people in my life—not just the money.
