Continuing our conversation with Breakthrough Practitioner, Danielle LaRock, learn how to connect with what she calls your “Authentic Vision.” What calls to you that is bigger than yourself - and yet feels so YOU? From here, Danielle shows us how to create a “Sacred Offering:” How you can BEST serve the world in your unique way? Lastly, we learn how to step into an “Impact Plan.” We tackle the question: How do we find the perfect balance between structure and freedom as we take actions that move us toward our calling?
