Love that he said attention is currency. I completely agree and it's crazy how infiltrated we are by this in our society.

I love, love, LOVE your content. I always wonder what you're going to come up with next, and you never disappoint! This came in perfect time as I'm about to start nursing school and needed a little push to deactivate some social media! I also have an add-on downloaded to my laptop that only allows for one tab open at a time. I can get up to 10 in one sitting if I'm not careful. 😂 Thanks for your hard work and excellent content. You're doing an amazing job.❤
