Here’s what we talked about:

What do you think of when you hear the word Control?

 

Maybe, it's micromanagement 

 

Or even the stress trying to figure out how to control your life and business as you expand

We go on to talk through the importance of being at cause and not effect of situations, and how this plays a critical role in determining the success of your life and business.

 

And check out the bonus section at the end where Fabian flips the scales and asks me a question, before diving into the "flash round"
