Today’s episode I am sure will make you stop for a minute and ask yourself how much of your identity you might have wrapped around certain areas of your life such as work
My guest today is an Amazon best-selling author, Robert Althuis, who wrote, “Never Enoughitis”. He is also the founder of the Sacred Wealth Institute, a mindful organization that provides coaching strategies, tools, and techniques to help private clients and businesses embody their full human potential.
Robert reached the pinnacle of success and yet, it was not enough, and today he shares that with us. On paper he had everything we could possibly want and inside the man was dying. He realized that the things that he did were not who he was. So let’s get into it.
