Episode Highlights

07:56 - (On purpose) I believe that when you have a real understanding of who you are and who you're created to be, you have this transformation in your mindset that you were actually created by God to be amazing, and there's so much in you that you can add to other people.

17:58 - (On visibility) Sometimes people feel like, well, I need to be ready to be visible. I need to get all my stuff together. I need to have the right messaging, the right words to say. I need to build an audience. You put all of these things together and all of these building blocks that you need to have before you start your journey to being visible. And that is actually a form of procrastination.

23:20 - (On sharing content) The more you give away, the more people realise that actually this person, one, cares about my success, two, they know what they're talking about, and then three, that makes them think, if she's going to give away all this stuff for free, then how much better is the stuff that she's charging for?

26:15 - (On money) Money is a tool for good. I believe that money buys you choice. I believe that money can change your lives, but even more so the lives of other people around you. I believe that is actually a really noble thing to aspire to have.
