Side Note :: do NOT stress if you don’t complete any of these before our session - we can do any and all together!! Doing some or all of these on your own, prior to our session can save you time and money, but is certainly not a requirement. The amount of preparation and homework you are able and willing to commit to is entirely up to YOU. I am here for you, with you. These are merely suggestions to help you get the most out of your investment to transform your life.
