Corey is enjoying the benefits of the work done by the previous owners and is “honoured to keep doing what they started”.
“I learn something new about the place every week – you gain a deeper focus for your space and a sense of purpose. It’s an overwhelmingly positive experience that has a profound impact on your life.”
