Why This Man Lost 100 Lbs | IMPACT Q&A

Change is NOT easy. Regardless of the change needed in one’s life, it takes commitment, sacrifice, discipline, and a lot of hard work to make the changes desired. Meet Rick Oliver. He messaged me on Instagram and shared his story of him recently losing 100+ lbs. I was so intrigued by his story, the reason he gained so much weight, and his WHY for making a major lifestyle change that I wanted to share his story with you. I think you are going to love it.

My friends, today’s short episode is designed to motivate and inspire you to take action for the one thing in your life that you would love to change also. Listen in and CHOOSE to get LIT-UP to make the changes necessary in your life, just like Rick did with his life.

As always, if you love today’s episode, please don’t be shy in sharing. We need to spread the gospel of motivation & inspiration world-wide. Thanks for being a fire-breathing dragon!
