Stephanie Kathan sits down with Best Selling Author & Media Personality
Jeff Rivera for a candid conversation about Creativity, Success and the power of
Feeling On Purpose
When I think of the people who have touched my life on a deep level, Jeff Rivera definitely comes to mind. For the last 8 years, he has encouraged, inspired and empowered me to be the best version of myself and believe in my ability to become successful.
He has shown me that I can create a life around talking with interesting people, and he's helped me build the confidence necessary to have mindgrowing conversations with the people I really want to talk to, but above ALL, Jeff has showed me how "Feeling On Purpose" creates positive change in our lives.
