Finding your Why

You Keep Using That Word, I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means

Taking a step back from the previous post I’m starting over at the beginning and stating why I started the Journey to $1 million.

Over and over again the main difference that creates successful companies, movements, and people is that they know their Why.

Once you know your Why the How and the What will take care of itself.

Without further ado…

My Why

To make our own dreams and visions become a reality.
