HumanQ: Was there ever something that someone taught you during your career that had a major impact and changed you?

HumanQ: What has been your biggest failure and what did you learn from that experience?

HumanQ: If you had a Magic Coach Wand and could help someone develop a new way of thinking overnight, what would it be?

Vonzel : “Who is it you really want to be?”
HumanQ: What do you think stops us from being our best selves and living our best lives?
