[59:19] - Final Thoughts

There's several nuggest of wisdom that Maya shared with us today, the two that I gravitate towards is when she said:

1. You don't know what the universe has in store for you. It's important to be open to everything. Don't be attached to one idea of what success looks like.

2. Trust your instincts. Keep that free spirit.

Folks, I hope you allow yourself the space and grace to explore and be curious.  I hope by hearing Maya's story, that it inspires you allow space for the universe to bring you different ways for you to experience success.  Everything's gonna be alright... You got this!
