Our inner core VALUES are what drive our lives and businesses. Self proclaimed “THRIVE-OLOGIST” Sue Guiher reminds us of the importance of getting back in touch with our core essence. What is our core essence anyway, you might ask? Your core essence is who you have always been - since the beginning. It’s why you left the industry you might have worked for and what caused you to make the decision of going off and doing it on your own. Remember? Once we connect with this part of ourselves once again, our decisions, connections and flow fall into place. Lean into this episode for more on this!

Be it our interactions with our clients, what we decide for our pricing, and the impact and power of the service we provide. In this episode, we talk about just how important it is to develop a healthy mindset around our own sense of self VALUE with guest Carrie Greene.
