89: Never Late, Never Wasted


The field of education is full of amazing moments, but all good things have moments that can tarnish or discourage us. Our destiny has a lot to do with how we handle those rougher moments. They can be the moments that define us and strengthen our resolve or they can destroy us. Tune in to hear how to use these moments so that they are not wasted, but utilized to catapult you into your potential.


  • You are growing into your potential at your own rate of speed so stop comparing.
  • Hard times are never wasted.
  • These moments are defining moments and you don’t want to miss out on becoming the absolute best you can be.
