The emotional journey of balancing what Robin Sharma calls ‘4 Interior Empires’:
Mind-set, Health-set, Heart-set and Soul-set is essential for every business owners’ personal equilibrium. This is not exclusive to business owners.

Cancer has reinforced to me that it is imperative to live well with your family and friends.
Cancer has reinforced to me that taking time and re-assessing priorities is good for your mental and spiritual strength.
I’m sharing this because I want you to get comfortable with checking your breasts (If you are a male check yours too because breast cancer doesn’t only affect women).
