How often have you heard about people at rock bottom, only to rise from there and become successful? While these stories may be inspiring, most don't expect them to happen to us. We often feel like there's nothing we can do when faced with such difficult circumstances.

But what if you could use these same principles that others have used to succeed in their lives, even when faced with tremendous hardship? What if you could use these same principles to reach your goals in life?


In today’s episode, we have our first guest of the show, a friend, successful entrepreneur, motivator, author, and mother of three, Lisa Griggs.

Lisa shares some great insights on overcoming adversity and how you can use it as an advantage instead of seeing it as a disadvantage. She also shares some great tips on making your luck by taking action even if you don't have everything figured out yet!
