Your big picture thinking, along with your small tips and tricks has really had a positive impact on me in both my personal and professional life. Thank you for all of your help and advice!"

It Doesn’t Have To Be Perfect To Be Amazing – Your Secret Sauce

Notes From My Gratitude Journal

By Nicole Mangina | July 16, 2020

My guest for The 425 Show had to reschedule at the last minute this week. It’s a pretty rare occurrence, but when it does, the debate is always – to replay an episode or hop on the air and go solo. As comfortable as I’ve gotten doing the show, it’s a whole different feeling when…
