How motivated are you?

Posted on

Many times a week I have clients sitting in front of me, fully motivated, researching every aspect of their situation, trying new ideas, learning from what has worked, what hasn’t, and taking new steps to keep trying. Other clients are not so motivated. They look at me and ask me to please tell them what […]

  Last Friday my husband and I went to the Dachau concentration camp. I have been to the Holocaust museum in Washington DC, but I have to admit, I was not fully prepared for what I would see at this location. No amount of book reading, or documentary watching could add up to standing behind […]

Expectations

Posted on

  Today I spoke to my husband before I was about to see my clients for the day. Knowing the conversation we were about to have, this was probably not a good idea. My husband is deployed. He has been since since August, and I have not seen him since October. I had planned on […]

Our Journey

Posted on

  So today is my first blog post! I am excited to begin this journey with my readers, and I hope that I can share some insights I have uncovered and continue to ponder. This week I was informed that a childhood friend had passed away suddenly. He was young, early 30s, leaving a wife […]
