10: Positive Masters - Mindset Clips - Manage Your Energy

Welcome to Positive Masters where we develop our mindset and passion projects! Every day we have a finite amount of energy that we can allocate to our deep work and deep studies.

Try tweaking your personal life and business to make a pivot.

Try tweaking your personal life and business to make a pivot. A couple of days ago, I walked around my neighborhood with my friend Claire Ann Niibu @bizcoachclaire who I've known since our time as students at Pearl City High School. She's a business coach who consults in person and offers online courses such as accounting at www.bizcoachclaire.com. We shared our latest happenings in our lives.
