EPISODE 122 – Accountability with Purpose

and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it
only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you
accept no excuses – only results.”
Kenneth H. Blanchard

I love talking with people but what really gets my juices flowing is learning about what gets people excited about their lives-what they are passionate about.
