It's time to stop doubting yourself. It's time to stop worry about what people think of you. It's time to take all the negativity from past employers, family members, past failed relationships, every wrong thing someone has said or done to you and turn it into spiritual and physical profit.
Long story short: Being broke is a state of mind. It's also a beautiful and painful process of helping you transform into spiritual greatness, way beyond making money.
Your former employer can and will be defeated all with your unique way of positive thinking and starting your business now in the most trying time of your life by doing the transformation business work out of inspiration or desperation. You are what you think.
