110: Nick Onken – Twelve Things I Learned in 2016
That’s what creating your moments is all about – taking a proactive approach to life.
Welcome to the first episode of 2017! What a year it has been – there have been a lot of amazing moments, but I have also been put through the ringer, just like a lot of people I’ve talked to.
I think it’s super important to acknowledge the things I’ve learned this year so that I can take action with them. I’ve learned a lot this year, and they were all very different lessons from last year. I want to kick off this year by sharing what I’ve learned with you.
