Talk to God….if your intentions are pure, sincere and helping others he will somehow make it all work but you have to give him the Glory. So if you want a business pitch yourself to him, lol HD already know but the conversation inspires YOU.
What is your favorite inspirational or motivational podcast? Why should readers listen to them?
I listen to a number of podcast, I wouldn’t classify them as inspirational because that’s not the genre but you can get inspiration from everything.
Share your top 2 inspirational or motivational books and why?
The Coldest Winter Ever- its inspirational because it’s a reminder to me that its young people trying to become successful in ways that aren’t good because that’s all they know, if I can be proof that someone who look like them and been in the same types of neighborhoods and schools can make it in a different way I can be their example. The bible- it keeps me grounded.
