Purpose and Paycut Don’t belong in the Same Sentence

Are you living your life purpose? When most people answer that question, they acknowledge they are not living their purpose. But, they have an invalid excuse, they don’t want to take a pay cut. What if I told you that purpose and pay cut don’t belong in the same sentence? In this talk you will realize your life your purpose and learn to focus on what you will gain, not what you will lose by living your purpose. By the end, you will agree that purpose and pay cut don’t belong in the same sentence.
