Whenever we go through different phases in our lives, we oftentimes try to connect it to how we were made better during those phases. Yet, we fail to realize that the progress that we make through each phase is less about us and more about how we can help others.

It's often said "Don't sweat the small stuff" but it's the small stuff that makes the biggest different.

We see it all the time. Gofundme, indiegogo, "click here to donate."

We have to ask ourselves "how much am I willing to sacrifice" before we stick our hand out because when we invest in our own business, we don't become dependent on others. Today, Shannaan talks about why it's important to forego asking for money and making the decision to do as much as possible without the aid of other people's money.
