In Case You Missed It

Last week, we had TWO episodes from Mr. Lifestyle himself, Jaime Powell! He shares how you can make money without being a main stage speaker through Contract Training. He believes that your passion will lead you to your purpose and that influence is the key to meeting your goal. You can find both of his episodes here.
