Yolanda Adams: You Go Through to Get Through

Too often we over analyze and over spiritualize what we have the capacity to do. We convince ourselves that we’re required to have everything perfected before we can share our progress, and we end up either giving up, failing, or waiting so long we miss our moment. Do what you can do with what you have and then allow the rest to evolve.

Today on the Redefining Wealth Podcast, we sat down with Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, and Grammy Award Winning Artist, Yolanda Adams to discuss her evolution from school teacher to gospel music phenomenon.
