Nick Crocker: Floss the Teeth You Want To Keep

Nick Crocker‘s QS journey started with his dentist telling him, “Floss the teeth you want to keep!” Nick tells the story below of how he spent five years figuring out how to implement changes in his life, and how hard it was to add this habit to his routine. He also shares, Ignite-style, ten lessons he learned to make change easier. (Filmed by the New York QS Show&Tell meetup group.)
