The Power of Decision

Bretter is a 20-something year old slop tart that made a bunch of bad decisions that got him kicked out of university. Fortunately for him, it's because of those bad decisions that he now gets to do what he loves - talk to people! Let's talk about what it means to make the "next right move" to affect positive change in your life. In other words, kicking ass and taking names. #DoBetter #BeBretter
