Episode 14: Time Management with Yasmin Vorajee

We’ve all heard the saying “You have the same amount of hours in your day as Beyonce.” and no doubt, it has either fired you up  or motivated you to go out there and seize the day. While, it’s true, each of us has the same set 24 hours in a day, what we do with that day varies greatly. We all have different priorities.
