“You deserve to do what you love; you deserve to live out your passion and to wake up every morning with a purpose and eagerness to get your day started. I was once told, ‘do what you’re passionate about and the byproduct of that will be wealth, success and recognition, but first do what you love so much so that people cannot fathom taking their eyes off you.’”
-Alexis Jones, founder of the empowerment company, i am that girl.
