Golden Nuggets


  • “Everyone has value, everyone’s experience is something that can be passed on. We all have stories in our past and things that we’ve been through that can help shape someone else and help them in their business, but also help them as humans.”

  • “Living big can be challenging, but it is about being committed to what you want, and going after it.”

  • “Don’t worry about tomorrow, let tomorrow worry about itself.”

  • “I need to be reminded as the planner that I don’t have to know how tomorrow is going to work out because God does. And that is a comfort to me.”
