“I believe when God gives you a vision, you have to fear who and what you see when you close your eyes; NOBODY!! You must have tunnel vision when it comes to business. I’ve learned that you don’t have any competitors unless you allow them to be, once you focus on your competitors you lose sight of the vision and path God has designed for you.” – Rachel Speight-Hudson
