I read self-help books and look up inspirational quotes like my life depends on it. Reading them feels life I have my own personal hype woman in my head, cheering me on when motivation is lacking as it does from time to time.
One amazing book I read, actually I listened to, was Marie Forleo's book, "Everything Is Figureoutable." I can tell you right now that is a book to get your hands on. Anyway, not only is the book full of realistic inspiration but she was the first person to give a name to what I conside myself. I am a "Multipassionate Entrepreneurs." The only time I like putting things in a box is when I am packing or packaging something. I do a lot of things. And I am not a Jack of all trades master of known. Nope. I put hardwork into everything I do.
