In 1999 and again in 2006 I realized that the power of the people was overwhelming my ability to do MY work here on the planet.

In this episode, you will learn…

  • People leave people, they don’t necessarily quit the work.
  • There are just a few people you can talk to who are there to bring you down.

  • Next year, Get Momentum members will learn 12 “Leadership Skills.”
  • What three other things Get Momentum members say they need to be better at.
