Living in your flow

In my career, I’ve spent a lot of time going around in circles. Some of it truly because I really didn’t know how to package what I do. I’ve used a number of vehicles to try and describe it in a way that others could identify it and purchase it. I’ve questioned myself, stopped and[…]
