A collection of meaningful quotes & my comments

On this journey of self-realization I started a few years ago, reading has been instrumental. Throughout my readings, I’ve come across deep words and genius ideas. Quotes that have impacted me and heavily contributed to the steps I’ve taken on my path.

Choosing the wrong social media platform can cost you money + time. And nobody wants that.

If there’s one question I must get more than any other, it must be this one: “should I create an Insta account for my business?”
