Have you ever felt like you’re working in chaos?

I think we all have, but it’s obvious that it doesn’t last long. When it comes to budgeting your time and your effort, you have to keep in mind that burnout can be our worst enemy. Our guest today is a natural workaholic just like me, but Emir Horton has made a shift in his life. Similar to the sentiment of our last episode, he understands that money is only one component. It can be so easy to put your head down and grind, but ignore the traumas that are stopping you from taking your life to the next level.

I’m thinking about where we are currently, black men particularly, and how much trauma and healing that we have to go through because of the pressure society gives us, especially in America. The value I would love to instill in all of us is to have some self-love for yourself, and a lot of that self-love comes with discovering who we are. In order to discover who you are you have to get through the baggage and do the work that your past experiences left you with. The only way we can heal the world is if we’re healing ourselves, and being a bridge and a mirror to others.
