reason to fail. Between a challenging youth where she was in and
out of foster homes, becoming a teenage mother, and the general
challenges of starting and running a business, this woman had a lot

share her own experience of changing her thought patterns to
manifest into tangible success, and why we should all accept

world. She also talks about how plant-based foods changed her life
