#114: Jeff Wickersham: First impressions are key!

Season #5

First impressions are key! Jeff Wickersham, the creator of the 4-step Morning Fire Methodology, explains that most of us start the day distracted by our phones, messages, emails and social media – your day is controlling you! In this episode, Jeff will have you rethinking how you start your day, ditching that ‘rainy day mentality’ and taking care of yourself first, from the moment the alarm clock goes off! “Once you crack just a little piece of your potential and you see it, then you can never go back.” Discover Jeff’s mantra of ‘Fight, Rise, Love, Repeat’ and prepare to make the most out of seeing every day as a gift. You’ll be jumping out of bed, running in the rain and taking up something new (you’re going to suck at it, at the start anyway) after this empowering conversation between Emma Doyle and Jeff Wickersham! Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!
