Q: Anything else you would like to add/want people to know?
BP - My favorite quote is: "You had a purpose before anyone had an opinion." I try to do everything in my life with intent. People will question your purpose/intent, which can create doubt in one's mind. Screw 'em. Don't let their "opinion" get in your mind and dictate if you have success. Surround yourself with good people, trust the process, and trust YOURSELF. Then you can turn to them and say "watch this"
