Episode #71 – Krista Hope – Leading from Love

    • [71:02] These types of conversations, for some, may seem irrelevant to the conversation about real estate. The truth is, you can have all of the “how-to” knowledge in the world, but the degree of our success will be equal to the degree we get real about ourselves and cut through the sh*t to get out of our own way. Then embrace the fact we need help to get there.
