Thank you for Listening!

This week my beautiful Biz BFF, Laura Petersen Shepard, (who used to live in CA & AZ but now lives in Germany) shares what it was like to grow up with an alcoholic mother.  At the age of 15, she decided that it was not in her best interest to continue a relationship with her mother and instead spends time with people who are truly positive influences.

Her inspiring advice includes the reminders that:

We become the average of the 5 people who you spend the most time with…choose wisely.

You only have 1 life, figure out what you want to become and then surround yourself with like minded people.

Think beyond the hurt, stress, and pain – work towards where you are going and spend time with people who are where you want to go.


Here are a list of Laura’s online businesses and how to connect with her.  She’s an amazing soul.  If you are interested in starting or growing an online business, I highly recommend listening to her podcast!
