Becoming Alive – Telling the Truth (Solgave Consulting VLOG)

Never forget that two of the greatest things one can ever do is to come alive, and tell the truth. In a one hour Skype interview with a client we will be working besides these words brought goosebumps.

Dear Former Self -American Politics and Law of Jante (Part 2)
