Katie Braswell | Holistic Nutritionist & Yoga Teacher

From my years spent in the corporate world as a sales representative, I learned the importance of timely communication. Throughout my sales career, it was expected that my customers would receive follow-ups and answers within a few hours.

I have ample weaknesses, but thankfully some of these can be turned around in developing good habits.

Habits can be interesting. Most people are not aware of their habits leading in from great to small ones. It’s often times the small habits that are the most important. I have found that breaking up with habits 1st is the key to allowing new and better habits to come in. (one door closes so another one can open) No habits just happen.
