Quotes & Take-Aways

Community is imperative in the journey of transformation.

The only limiting factor in this equation is what’s happening between your ears.

The genuine power behind a transformation is in integrity and community.

Most people when they embark upon their journey of transformation they expect a lot of their family, friends and loved ones to support them throughout the whole journey; the unfortunate fact of the matter is that this isn’t the case.

It’s not a trainer and a client relationship. That’s not what transformation is about. It’s about friendship, love, integrity and support.
