I know some of you are still deciding whether to come to my live event in Houston. Going to a live event (especially one NOT in your town) seems like a risky investment. First, there is the cost of the event – then, the travel expenses. Layered on top of that is are more personal fears – what if nobody talks to me.

One of my clients, Belanie Dishong (LiveAtChoice.com), teaches people how to have amazing relationships whether that is with other people, your career or your money. One of the things she teaches is that we are 100% responsible for everything that shows up in our lives. We choose it based on our words.
