Lewis Howes on Peeling Back our Mask to Achieve Greatness
If there is one man that understands how to achieve Greatness, it is this one.
But- not only does Lewis Howes know how to achieve it for himself, he has made it his mission… his life’s purpose... to help as many people as he possibly can, do the same.
When I met Lewis in person for the first time at his Summit of Greatness Mastermind event, I felt called to share with him how grateful I was and how deeply connected our stories were on a soul level. Our pasts and our journeys share this incredible synchronicity, and even now- here is a man helping me to give life to my dreams, while I help game-changing women and mamapreneurs (like you) breathe life into theirs.
So, you know, what an honor it is to bring him here for you and to dig in deep on this conversation. Today we are breaking the code and unlocking the secrets that will help you take off that mask that you’ve been wearing to live in alignment with your truth, so you can manifest your dreams into reality.
Lewis has built a game changing empire around one simple word: Greatness. He has forged a path and given us the map to stepping into what we are afraid of and creating the life we know we were meant for. Whether it is through his podcast, in either one of his books,The School of Greatness and his newly released The Mask of Masculinity or in one of his live events; he is constantly urging us to break through our old barriers and set our eyes on the sky.
