Do The Work | IMPACT Q&A Ep 17

Be willing to do today what others won’t, so you can do tomorrow what others can’t! Today’s IMPACT Q&A episode is all about DOING THE WORK. Some days are harder than others but it always comes down to the focus and discipline to be working on the RIGHT stuff. The 2 questions I tackle today are…

  1. On the days you wake up and have a lot on your plate, little sleep, and you’re just not feeling it…what is your ritual to get that energy and focus to light a fire on the inside? (Logan Peters)
  2. How do you break through plateaus or burn-out periods to reach the next level of growth? (Rachele Jaegers)

If you are looking for renewed energy, a breakthrough in your business, and need some tips on peak productivity, this episode is for you!
