This book gave me the kick in the ass that I needed to use my voice and step in to my power. Gary V doesn’t hold back and lays out the groundwork for turning you passion into a paycheck.

This book goes a bit deep than Danielle’s “Desire Map.” I consider this my workbook for life and creating balance. By focusing on your core values, strengths and desires you are able to create the life you desire. This also focuses on releasing what holds you back. Consider this your bible to finding clarity on your terms.
