Like having more freedom and having more control.

Can you relate?

Freedom and Control

My last official, ‘job’ was so dysfunctional, it still hurts my brain to even think about it.

Heck, Dr. Phil could have brought his entire crew in to tape a full week of episodes without even scratching the surface of all the sickness that was taking place at the automotive franchise I was attempting to manage. It was bad.

And because of the dysfunction, I turned into a person I never wanted to be. 

Good thing my position there didn’t last long. 


The freedom to come and go when you please sounds nice, doesn’t it? There’s more.

How about the freedom to hiring who you want.

The Change

And you can too.

But it takes courage.

Do you have it?
