One of the things that used to feel like a black hole of time and energy, especially in my business, was my email. Seriously, there was so much of it.

Last week there was no Wednesday LIVE with Evie because, as I shared, I couldn’t come up with a topic. What I didn’t share was that I wasn’t feeling great and focusing on anything beyond the surface level at the beginning of last week wasn’t happening.
