My primary interest in this episode was to talk about a pattern I’ve been seeing that I think is important to point out. One that may make or break businesses moving forward. But in looking at this pattern, I couldn’t help but notice the process of noticing patterns in the first place. Whether they exist on their own or we project what we want to see. In the end, it’s about noticing in the first place.

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.
