Don’t just have goals. Create a Lifestyle.

If you would have told me over a year ago that my life would include daily beach walks, writing in cafes, and only about 3-5 appointments per week, I would have said “That’s a dream.” But I’m living the dream. Did it take a ton of hard work? Yes. Did it happen overnight? No. But, […]
