At the end of December 2020, I received an email from Jenna Kutcher. The subject line was “ What are you doing New Years Day?”

My instant response was cooking dinner for my mom for her birthday. But I wanted to know what Jenna was doing since she was asking.

In all of those trainings, I skipped my way through like a skipping a rock on a lake. I never had enough skin in the game to take it seriously.

I learned a few things from them that are useful. But today I couldn’t tell you much at all of what I learned from the free training.

Somehow I knew by plugging that card number into the check out page for GrowthDay I would not regret it.

What I wasn’t expecting was how my life changed.

Who I Am This Day in January 2022

I do have a long ways to go to build the life I want to a have. I always will have a long ways to go.

As I learned from Mel Robbins on GrowthDay, you never reach your goal because there will always be the next level to get to. The journey towards your goal is your goal. What you…
