Episode 009: Audacious Life Lesson – My5: Building Your Tribe

Today on the podcast is another Audacious Life Lesson. Now, I have lived enough life to know that we are just getting started, so there is always another lesson to be learned. Many of the lessons you will learn here are from the Audacious Life Formula 2.0, which I teach one-on-one in live workshops. In today’s episode, we are going to talk about the people we surround ourselves with and whether or not they are good for us and how we can change that and create a tribe, which I call My5. It is a fact that we take on the traits of the five people we spend most of our time with. So stay tuned to hear the story of my tribe and the five people that I surround myself with, how I found them, and the best strategies for you to find your five.
