Slay 2019 with a Financial Fresh Start | Financial Health

How many times have you gotten to the end of the year, and felt like you didn't quite accomplish the things you wanted to? I have, and as you probably already know it’s not a good feeling.

Goal Setting Vs. Adopting A System

Goal Setting Vs. Adopting A System As an entrepreneur, I have set many goals for myself, my business, my family, my finances, my love life, and so on.

The point that I am making here is that my whole life has been managed, driven, and determined by goals I did or did not achieve. And the funniest part about it all is that once I achieved my goals, they were done. I had nothing else to look forward to besides another goal which would soon be complete or not completed for the moment. I have personally been blessed with a tremendous amount of mentors...


When To Eat: Putting Your Body On Your Work Schedule

How many of us focus on when to eat? No many rights? The focus and pressure have always been put on what to eat and that is important as well, but what if when we eat is just as important?
