061: Investing in Yourself with Marshawn Evans Daniels

In Part 2 of our interview, Marshawn Evans Daniels shares the struggles and stories of investing in our future selves. We discuss the 5 Success Mountains - the areas of our lives we choose to identify with so much, that we may often lose ourselves in them. We’re digging deep in this episode on the importance of showing up for ourselves, and living ‘bigger so we can live bolder.’

The results from our fall 2017 liveWELL Method students have been amazing. Many of them have made significant changes in their lives to discover their unique priorities and implement a personalized plan to achieve their dreams, and I want the same for you. Let’s be honest, digging into something like that can be overwhelming… and maybe a little daunting.

The new and improved liveWELL Method 2.0, begins with understanding your own foundation – the things you want to pursue, the things you want to focus on and the things that matter the most. I redesigned a series of exercises to make it easier to understand and discover… and I personally hold your hand through the process.
