I have been with Academy Epic from the start. It has been a fantastic journey! Unlearning the bad habits is so difficult but worth it. Learning to trust my God given talents and gifts is continuously challenging to push my EGO aside and stop “shoulding” on myself. Academy Epic has been a cornerstone to bringing me to this point.
