“Discover Your Mission: 4 Lessons From a 50-State Journey”
Janine Stange candidly shares the shifts in her thinking and habits that led her to abandon comfort zones that she occupied for over a decade. Those actions led her on a life-changing 50-state mission that demanded self-motivation, focus, creativity, balance, and follow through.
