When Business Becomes Your Mistress

#RealPersonRealNeeds #podcast

Before you started pursuing your dreams, you were probably preoccupied with thoughts of what it would be like. If you’re like me, you would waste your time daydreaming about it and come home from work miserable and unable to be there mentally and emotionally for your family.
