We discuss the importance of trusting your instincts and going after your dreams even when people tell you ‘no.’
- People are going to tell you no. Don’t give up.
- Demand your worth. Period.
- Always listen to your instincts.
- Stop listening to other people. Listen to yourself.
- It’s never too late to change direction.
- If the same thing isn’t working, do something else.
- It’s okay to have what you want from life change.
- You are enough.
(BONUS TAKEAWAY: If your job is making your physically sick, quit!)
