Success is a Journey

I've once again found myself living in the desert region of Texas, but have quickly established a fluid balance between working 60 hours a week, steadily developing my online business, and advancing my wellness practice on a daily basis.

Northbound on a Prayer

I needed a new perspective, but first, I needed to be alone. I was now at a crossroads and there was no turning back. I had given up most of my belongings and was moving forward on blind faith. I didn't want to be around people and thankfully I had the refuge of life in... Continue Reading →
