While hunkered down at a friend’s house last weekend to wait out massive Hurricane Irma to make landfall on my home in Miami Beach and all of the state of Florida, I had a lot of time to think.

But above all, you need know that you and what you are here to accomplish are worth way more than the struggle of dealing with money issues.

It’s knowing that what people don’t see behind the scenes is more important that what they do see.

WARRIOR of Reciprocity

When you’re a Creative Warrior, there is virtually no separation between you and your business. In fact, what we explore in this episode is the power to get the results you want in your business by advancing your personal development. The anchor of this episode is my favorite quote by Jim Rohn–“Your level of success rarely exceeds your level of personal development.” Think of this as a moveable ceiling. You raise the ceiling by advancing yourself and your level of success rises to meet your new height.
