Call to Action
What is your calling? What do you feel called to do with your business and your life? Are you doing the work you want to be doing? If you are – awesome! If not, why? Take a few minutes this week and just think about that. What do you feel called to do? This can be a powerful exercise – and it might bring up some big things for you. Who knows, this could be the start you realizing your dreams.
