Let's dive in now...
Hey today I want to pick back up on this conversation about staying in the zone. Today I want to talk about how to avoid the information track.

Good friend of mine Brian Jenkins about three years ago he said, hey everybody part of our coaching call he said hey let's do for 90 days no news.
