#21 - Rapid Fire Recap of 2018

In this special episode of It’s Not What It Seems, I wrap up 2018 with a highlight reel of this year’s guests. Specifically, I’m sharing the rapid fire section at the end of each episode where guests answer the same three or four questions.

  1. One piece of advice they wish they’d never hear again

  2. One quote or motto they live their lives by

  3. One book that’s impacted their thinking

  4. One thing they want to tell the world “It’s Not What It Seems”

These questions brought so much gold. I think you’ll find some inspiration to take with you into 2019.
