Finding Your Passion Featuring Dr. Gary Sanchez
What if you could explain to your partner why you are in the way you are? What if you can explain to your boss or your team why you like doing this task as opposed to that? What if you could find out the same thing about the people you love with the people you work with daily? I ask Dr Gary Sanchez those very questions and the reason why I ask Dr Gary Sanchez is because although he is a dentist by trade Dr Gary Sanchez has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in self improvement everything you could think of every class he took it he was able to design a framework that tens of thousands of entrepreneurs have taken and it's free of cost. A methodology of why people do, What they do. And he found out that there are about nine different types. We're all a bit of each one of those but there's an emphasis. Without question. And in a world of increasing globalization. How can we give ourselves the ads that we need to be happier more successful? Gary's site:
