A Song for Frustrated Business Goddesses…

by Leonie Dawson on April 14, 2011

Hola my gorgeous Goddess,

It’s so so SO easy to get frustrated, lost & disgruntled on the journey of becoming & being a Business Goddess.

You want your dreams to come true. And when they don’t seem to be happening – it’s heart-breaking & disenchanting.

But there is another solution, ya know?

All you need to do…
is sing this song with me.

It’s true.

I love you with all my heart & believe in you SO much!!!
