“Don’t victimize yourself. When you victimize yourself, you’re setting yourself up for failure and the easy way out.”
Daisy Martinez is the founder of the non-profit, Trash Free Earth and is one badass lady. If you think you have it easy, or you know you have it hard and feel like no one understands you – meet Daisy.
I first met Daisy while hiking with her organization in Pasadena and was very impressed with her!
In this episode, Daisy shares how she juggled being a mom and a university student while working numerous jobs. As well as, how she began and decided to focus on growing her non-profit. 🌎 She shares it’s not been an easy road to build her non-profit, but one she finds joy and purpose in doing right now in her life.
Her story really shows how we can truly be the change we want to see. Instead of being frustrated with the problems facing our Earth and even our own personal problems, we can do something about it!
