  • Nothing is required to get started except a willingness to try something new.
  • You will be learning some new concepts and when learning something new this can cause fear and overwhelm! It’s import that you are aware of this, the “start stops most people” I ask that you just be patient with yourself.
  • Honor the learning journey. Go through the videos a couple of times to learn the concepts then proceed to apply them..
  • Remember education that is not applied is useless.. I will leave you with this, a quote from Joseph Campbell “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek”
