[Episode 90] You don’t need to ask for permission to be financially free. An empowering discussion with investor and business coach Renée Warren

"If I do a job in 30 minutes, it’s because I spent 10 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes." Too many of us forget that our time is valuable.
