I found Pimp Your Brilliance through another podcast that recommended her Visionary Journal. And I have been a fan of Monique’s ever since. Monique does a great job of sharing realistic tips on how to get stuff done. And her energy is like no other. If you are stuck and don’t know what to do next, this podcast is for you! If you need encouragement to keep going, this podcast is for you! Oh and her Visionary Journal is BOMB!!! Once I hit the six month mark of using mine, I’m ordering another!! This journal has made big goals attainable! I can go on and on about Monique and her Brilliance. I pump up her work so much people think I know her in real life lol! I am so happy I found this podcast when I did.
