Have you ever wanted wanted to start your business but feel stuck?

Is procrastination and fear of not being able to replace your income keeping you back?

Emotional Trauma does not have to be as bad as the word 'trauma' suggests. A kid being left back at school with all the other children gone home can be trauma for the child and they may form a BELIEF like 'I am not good enough' to be...
