Be Humble. While we were getting my company up and running, I was still training. My body was completely different after cancer. I wanted to be able to physically do everything that I used to be able to do pre-cancer. I had to give myself time to heal and gain back the strength and flexibility. I had to be teachable which was very challenging. One time I just couldn’t perform a certain move correctly. I could before cancer but couldn’t at that time.
