Consider this your daily dose of positive propaganda and a push in the right...

Lori just hit a huge milestone with her show, Earn Your Happy: 1,000 episodes! I’m constantly inspired by her consistency and dedication to the platform she’s built and how much value she adds to her listener’s lives.  Not only am I celebrating Lori today, but I’m also using her accomplishment as an example.

When it comes to money mindset, a lot of us take advice from well-meaning people or institutions that want to keep us small.

We also share how we’ve learned to reset our thermostat and push the limits of what we believe is possible.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Looking back at...
