Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: One of the most impactful things I heard over, and over and over again was the importance of the morning routine and while it seems obvious, it is often overlooked. When starting something new and thinking of planning and preparation, don't forget about the morning routine. Heather touched on how impactful it was for her to “make that mental shift to being a morning person” and one of Heather's values is all about freedom and how she ran a $500M portfolio but made a shift in her career. She's a trailblazing and inspiring person but also this episode was a great reminder of how you can be the change you hope to see.

Being a CEO to me means freedom. Truly I would say probably my number one value outside of learning is freedom. I spent many years in the corporate world, where I was making a lot of other people a lot of money and I wanted the freedom to travel, and spend my time where I wanted to spend it giving back and creating this whole neat ecosystem.
