Let’s talk about YOU: Reader survey time!

One of my favorite things to do is to help people find answers to their problems and encourage them to keep following their dreams.

But… that’s hard to do if you don’t know people’s problems and dreams!

So, would you take the next two minutes or so to fill out my seven-question reader survey? I’m going to use your answers to plan out all of my content for 2017: newsletters, blog posts, courses, and more!

Take the reader survey now!

And if you leave your email address at the end, I might follow up with more questions and a gift card for saying thank you!

Thanks, friend!
