On this solo Q&A episode, I cover three topics:

First I walk you through the four boxes you need to check in order to progress in your training

Then I answer a questions that I get asked often, particularly in the current time, of how to find your soul’s purpose, how to ultimately find what you want to do in life. 

And finally, I give you my advice on how to become someone of value – plus an added daily habit I think everyone should implement.

I hope you enjoy this episode and if you do, don’t forget to join me on Instagram and let me know what resonated with you most in this Q&A.
