82: Stand Under or Stand Out

When change needs to happen in our world, do you stand under the current system or do you stand out and make the change? We can no longer expect things to change by being frustrated and making noise… we have to take action- BIG action. Tune in to hear what you can do right now to make your situation and our world better. Go make history!


  • Standing under in compliance never changes your predicament; it just prolongs your predicament.
  • Standing under is a waste of everyone’s time and just ensures problems remain problems.
  • You have to dare to dream and you have to be willing to do the work
