Plus, the mastermind group is absolute gold, we’ve made wonderful connections with other students internationally who are just as passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of others.
Some links on this page include affiliates, where if you decide the services meet your needs, the provider gives a small commission for helping get the word out. The cost is the same as when you go to their website directly.
I became an affiliate simply because after a lot of trial and error, these are the resources I am proud to use everyday and I’m excited to share them with you.
If you have any questions or need help getting started with these tools and resources, get in contact and I’d love to chat more!
