Sep 30, 2020

“My mission is to use this platform and the improve it! platform to shed light, positivity and levity during these tough times. I want you to know that you matter, and you have a voice. I want you to show up for your friends, family and community in the way you want to show up. It is my mission and the mission of improve it! to help guide you to your life’s “it” or purpose.” - Erin Diehl

Failed it! Fam: what is the one thing in your life you want to change?That one thing that sticks out to you, that voice inside your head, that nagging noise in your ear that says “this isn’t right.” Got it? Then let’s get to failing it.

There are three things that Erin attributes this massive transition in her life to: Inspiration, Manifestation and Action. These words are not anomalies when it comes to change. Listen in on Erin’s story and advice when it comes to making the big move to the location of your dreams, and what it takes to get there.

If you need a “nudge” to get out there, take a risk and try something new, then this episode is for you.
