I want to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who submitted an essay for the Primal Blueprint Scholarship. Between my staff and I, we read every single submission (and there were LOTS of submissions). The sincerity, passion, and strength in each and every essay makes me proud to be part of this community, and thankful to those that read what I write here at Mark’s Daily Apple. And, of course, I’d like to give a big congratulations to our three scholarship winners: Lana, Buck and Tanja. We’re all thrilled to have you on board the growing community of Primal Blueprint Certified Experts! Thanks again, everyone. I hope to see many of you in the program soon. Grok on!
