  • How can you develop the mindset of ‘trusting the process’ and not skipping steps?
  • What can protectors learn about prioritization from the quote “stop saying you don’t have time for something, just say you don’t care”?
  • Can protectors keep and develop their relationship with a single client over decades without developing themselves as well?
  • How do you convert a verbal body blow to become positive energy?
  • How can you leverage others’ mistakes through mentorship?
