Episode 13: Creating a Miracle Mindset with JJ Virgin

In this episode JJ and I spoke about all of the things. From motherhood, family, growing a business, sugar cravings, willpower and victimhood, we talked about how our mindset is the foundational support for every belief we have (something we talk about all the time on the show). So many of us become attached to a story of victimhood and if we're not mindful, it can seep into every area in our lives. I love how JJ breaks this down in the episode and sums it up with her quote, “There are no victims, only volunteers.”
