I am super happy to present and introduce Marcia Scott, a woman blessed with wisdom beyond comparison. I had the privilege of meeting Marcia because of a referral, and from the first time we spoke, there was an immediate connection, she cared about the things that are important to me, things like: making a difference and making sure to be on purpose, she is an evangelist preaching about meditation and the power of making small shifts that when done repeatedly create big change. Marcia speaks with stories that capture our attention and our soul. The best part (for me) is that I get the chance to create videos with her, to help her reach more people to make a bigger impact, to inspire more people with the power of video and social media. it feels good to help others find their light and see them grow and find their path. it is with a big smile on my face that I share with all of you one of the videos we created with Marcia Scott a Spiritual Mentor and Soulful Powerhouse.
