Describe what you do in your job. What is a typical day like?

I use my day very productively. I engage with a variety of people who feel stuck and feel they are going around in circles either in their personal or business life. I mentor and coach, and inspire individuals to develop a powerful mindset to combat and manage the day to day challenges they encounter.

I do the things that are important and requires my time and energy. I have the flexibility of working from anywhere I choose there is free Wi-Fi. All I need is my laptop and my phone.
