Day Twelve of SIAD Blog Tour - Chris Trenschel and Tamara Murray

I met Chris and Tamara this year in a mastermind group started by our friend and fellow member, Josh. Each member is building a sort of portfolio career with an entrepreneurial spin. We know each others’ goals, share advice, and keep each other accountable through biweekly phone calls.

Today, I am proud to share Chris and Tamara’s blog post about taking the toad less traveled for day twelve of the Somehow I Am Different tour.

If you are thinking about taking a leap into the unknown, I hope that Chris and Tamara’s words of advice are helpful! Thank you for sharing with the team, Chris and Tamara!
