In the words of Roy Scott, “You have to believe even when nobody else does. You have been given a vision and it’s essential that you stick to the course to see it come to fruition. You’ve got to have this unstoppable belief in yourself and your dream. You’ve got to have blind faith.” Take a few minutes out of your day to listen to Lisa and Roy’s conversation about changing the narrative, blind faith, and impacting the world around you.

Roy’s Something Extra: You have to believe even when nobody else does. You have been given a vision and it’s essential that you stick to the course to see it come to fruition. You’ve got to have this unstoppable belief in yourself and your dream. You’ve got to have blind faith.
