I was the dude that was getting things for free. It goes back to when I was growing up in the projects, on the lower east side – in this dangerous environment, in poverty – getting lots of things for free. It was all that, it was common. But it became dysfunctional when I didn’t grow out of it. So as an adult – I was still trying to get things for free and I didn’t give anything value. I never thought about value.
But…everything changed. Christine taught me about “congruence.” So, I said, “I want to actually DO something. I don’t want to be the person who is doing like 10% of something. I want to be the person who does things full out.”
Christine gave me something worth paying attention to. I could specifically pay attention to growing my business, becoming more sustainable, and being more aligned with my purpose in life.
