I had everything you're supposed to have to make you feel happy - money, success, recognition-- and yet I had never felt emptier - "What the Hell Am I Supposed to do with my life?! A fun and friendly guide to finding your magic, your purpose and yo' self" -Introduction

With Bordeaux glasses and Hors d'oeuvres in hand, the guests would soon experience being the first to see a special episode of Krystal TV, created just for the event. In the episode Krystal gave 3 actionable steps on how to get your life on track which are:

  1. Make an announcement or Book something
