Les’ ADVICE –

Don’t die with your gifts, your talents. Know that you are created for greatness. There will be obstacles and you can overcome them. That is the journey, the story people want to hear. Be ready for the moment. Don’t let fear or failures overtake you. Know that you are wonderfully and fearfully made. No matter what you are facing, even if you’ve made a mistake, that’s not who you are. Make sure you don’t take your gifts to the grave. Squeeze your life out like a lemon and do everything to make a difference on this earth!

  • Your mistakes don’t define you

  • Preparation happens when no one is looking
