EPISODE 12The most common complaint most people have is that there are just not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything they want to do. In order to maximize our time and reach our goals, we must ensure we have the right support systems in place. Most people don’t know what support they need or how to value their time to pick the right support for their goals.
