My biggest superpower is the work I have done on myself, and I get to give that back to our clients. Oftentimes our clients come in, and it’s really scary, and they want to focus on all these external things. And I found that when you really focus and turn inside and focus on your internal reality, all that other stuff, it comes. Your external reality will change when you focus on yourself. And because of the work I’ve done, that’s what I get to give away.
Kara Hinkle, CAS Residential Manager
