    I love Ann’s message of looking back on life, knowing that you lived it on your terms. So important to remember that we can (and should) control certain things in our lives, like our relationship with money. Great interview!

      Hello Amanda,

      I agree that we need to remember that we can take charge. Drive to a destination. And if metaphorically speaking there are road blocks, then we can re-route. Thanks for your comments.

    Thank you Sophia and Ann – this was so inspirational. I identified with Ann’s discussion on decision making. I know that feeling of making decisions because I think I “should” do something. Or because I hope something is a magic bullet that will transform my business and take it to the next level. I’ve (mostly) taught myself to resist this temptation. I know I get my best results when I focus on my end game and doing what I know is right for me and my business.

      Hello Sally,

      Thanks for your feedback and bringing to attention the ‘where’ you are basing your decision making from. It is better come from a abundand, growth mindset instead of scarcity or lacking. For example, if I do this then I ‘appear’ more like an expert.
