I Promise Me w/ Special Guest Chantelle Cotton
A promise is something that we usually give to someone else that signifies the importance of our word to them. Why can't the same be true of the promises that we make to ourselves? When we make a promise to ourselves it should be kept sacred and held in the same regard as ones we make to other people. Join Dr. DeYonne Parker and her special guest, Chantelle Cotton, Founder of the Luxxe Level Group and author of "I Promise Me", for a candid conversation around the self promises that we make, keep and break.  #SelfLove #Promises #SelfConfidence #SWAG #DrDeYonne #CourageCatalyst #ChantelleCotton
