Today’s Guide – The world is filled to overflowing with abundance. And, the more you put into the world, the more it will come back to you.
“There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there's only scarcity of resolve to make it happen.”

Today’s Guide – For anyone unsatisfied with being stuck, the power to change lies within. This transformation starts from within and then manifests into outward changes that others can see.
