Chris’s Gem of Wisdom:
“Whatever your dream is, it has to come from you. As soon as you know what excites you the most, it’s going to lead you to what you’re best at – and what you have to offer the world. Know yourself. Love yourself, and give yourself permission to be in touch with that part of yourself and the rest will follow.”
