What It Takes to Attract the The Man You Want
I've learned that attracting the kind of man you want requires about 10-15% knowledge and skill and about 85-90% mindset and foundation. When you only have the knowledge and skill, you're essentially building a house on quicksand.  It may look really pretty for little while, but eventually it is going to crumble.  In today's episode, I share the 3 main areas where you need to build your foundation in order to attract (and keep!) the kind of long-term relationship you want with the kind of man you want it with!Mentioned in Today's Episode:Enrollment for the Date Like You Mean It group coaching program is now open!  CLICK HERE for more information!I also have several spots open for 1-1 coaching!  CLICK HERE to schedule a free discovery call and find out more!
