    I think tapping into your own intuition, your own inner knowing, is way better than getting advice from a quote-unquote expert.

  • Are your thoughts in the direction of joy?

    To better understand the Law of Attraction, see yourself as a magnet attracting unto you the essence of that which you are thinking and feeling.

  • What do you do after you say, I don’t know how?

    What do you do after you say, I don’t know how? I’d like to find more meaningful work, but I don’t know how. I’d like to start a blog, but I don’t know how. I’d love to try travel hacking, but don’t know how to do it. I know it’s time to negotiate a higher […]
