I want to share one video with you about success and what contributes to success. Take 5 minutes to watch this TED talk - it is so worth it. 
What is the key to success? Watch this 5 minutes video to know.

Its important that you have a clear vision of what kind of clients you want to work with and what are your boundaries. I do not give out my mobile number to ANY client and that is non-negotiable for me. I want to have life outside work and by not being available 24/7 has worked out really well for me - I love my career and being on top of when I work.

Freedom is the driving factor in my business. Freedom of location, freedom of time, freedom to travel, freedom to visit family & friends around the world……

Freedom to design my lifestyle is my driving force. All my courses are focused on creating freedom in life and business.
