I changed my mindset and I psyched myself to believe I was going to beat the disease and I did. I said affirmations. I changed my diet to illuminate meat and I started living life.
I stopped talking about what I wanted to do and I started doing what I wanted to do. And my marriage fell apart from the man I loved and it was hard. I struggled through paying high price NYC lawyers and taking care of my elderly dad and taking care of myself while keeping my business a float. It was a lot
What is next for your brand/business in 2017? I will be launching my Urawarrior digital academy online and an app and I'm coming out with my best seller book. I am growing my personal development business worldwide and I'm loving every minute of it. I am launching my IAMAWARIOR Jewerly--beads and bangles for inspiration and motivation when you need it
