Making A Living Podcast (general)

Do you want more from your career? Are you tired of struggling, not fully living the dream? Would you like to attract new, better opportunities? What most people don't realize is that focusing only on the "how" might not be the path to success. Instead, one secret to obtaining success is feeling your goal is already achieved, experiencing it as if it's already yours. In this episode, I’ll share proven methods and approaches associated with the Law of Attraction to support you in applying the 3 simple steps of ask, believe, receive to your career. You will end this with ideas not just about how to do a new business card mock up but with the feeling of having already succeeded in attaining your career goal(s).
