These questions are specific to the members that asked them but believe us when we say there is so much juicy, relatable content and info in here for everyone!

To scale or not to scale? When is the right time to take a step up and bust through that glass ceiling with your business? Is getting better preferable to getting bigger? In this episode we are talking about growing with intention.

How can we live better lives? Do you want to implement great habits in order to achieve your goals? What determines the success of our attempts when trying to form habits?

It is actually a bit easier than you might think to get that pot steaming and your platforms fizzling with fresh new stuff for you clients.
