Trailblazer's Breakfast: Tana Greene

When you get the opportunity to learn from a POWERHOUSE like Tana Greene, it takes some time to soak in all the wisdom. 

I think I finally got my head around it, and came up with the most powerful learnings for me:

1.  Break the rules that aren't working for you.

2.  There are three levels of happiness:  Rock Stardom, Cultivating & Developing Your Personal Passions, & Serving Others.  Fulfillment received from the first two may be fleeting.  It's in the latter you find peace. 

3.  Drive, success, & goals are ageless.  Experience is priceless.
