Seize the Day with Vivian Risi

This week I met with Vivian Risi to discuss her book, 24 Hours Is All It Takes: Daily Habits Guaranteed to Change Your Life. This is a book about the daily essentials… things we could all do every day to kickstart the next steps toward living the life we want to live. And it’s a book filled with ideas, strategies, and tools, especially the ones we can use first thing in the morning so we can all seize the day.
