Which path progresses your purpose best?

Discerningly choosing our battles means having the wisdom to evaluate opportunities and only commit to those that are fully aligned with our vision, values, and capabilities. This approach prevents wasted time and resources, allowing us to focus our energy only on endeavors that can truly move us steadily closer to our goals and dreams.

This week, Connected Leaders Academy Founder, Jose Escobar is back by popular demand to share the power of committing with intention. Jose is a bestselling author, speaker, and entrepreneur who has built multiple six-figure businesses. By committing to a daily morning and evening routine for an entire year, Jose was able to clearly define his vision and priorities, empowering him to make strategic decisions that led to doubling his income and launching new ventures.

Tune in as Daniel and Jose share the importance of investing in personal growth on a daily basis, sales techniques, the value of hard work, how to make decisions that align with our vision, the benefits of having the right support system, and what it means to live a life of service.
