    There is a massive problem I see every day - sometimes in my own life and regularly in the lives of my listeners and clients:  We KNOW what to do to reach our goals, we REALLY want to reach them but we fail, time and time again, to be consistent.  We live in the gap, failing to make it to what we intellectually know is possible for us.  I believe that this problem is leading to illness, to unhappiness, depression, anxiety, divorce and much more.  Fortunately, I believe we can solve this problem and I'm ready to help those of you who want to join me in the Change Makers Action & Accountability mastermind starting in January of 2022.  Registration is open now and spaces are limited.  Here's a link to more information and your registration.  If you have question, message me ASAP before spots fill up!
