    This video speaks truth. Although my financial success has not yet kicked in, I'm asked many times to collaborate with others, create new products and change the world - one mindgasm at a time. I love my work as it liberates women (and men) from the shackles of the wrong kind of fear and transforms it into the kind of fear that has them at their best - excitement.

    That it is all true. I truly believe if you work hard..become a sponge to your mentors..learn all you can. Soak up the knowledge you will be successful. Without failure there is no success!
