Trust Me!

I strongly believe in the power of knowledge because it creates clarity, and a subsequent sense of self awareness.

Knowledge fuels motivation!

With this being said...I say, "Trust me!," when I tell you that the book "The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do In Live and  Business," by Charles Duhigg is a PERFECT companion to my recently released book, which gives insight into the essential ingredients of motivation.

My book is about creating positive, goal directed habits, Charles Duhigg wrote a book that does an outstanding job illuminating the power of habits and the impact they have on daily life.

These two books compliment one another; both create awareness about 2 very important, related topics. Trust me!

Here is a link to this highly recognized and successful book:

The Power of Habit

Enjoy, and accomplish your goals in 2019!
