If you feel like you’re trapped – whether that be through not having the “perfect background” or feeling like your economic situation is holding you back, you need to listen to this episode.

  • You may be struggling right now because you believe more strongly in the barriers right in front of you. 
  • Or you may (like many others) believe that there is a straight highway to success, and you don’t see yourself on that road. You feel like you’re in the grass on the side. This episode is going to shift your mindset and provoke thought to help you succeed.
