Ok fair warning here.

There are moments of this masterclass that are… well, brutal.

I promised myself I would give tough love. Why? Because most people need it.

People get romantic about their headlines. I need to be a little harsh to shake you out of your patterns.

If you can be open minded for this session, there are some huge lessons here.

Normally, I’d highlight some lessons from the video below, but since this was such a personalized session, I highly recommend you watch the whole session.

You can do it on 2x speed. I won’t be mad.
