NO CAPE NEEDED

NO CAPE NEEDED

We have all been here. “Can any parent volunteer this week to help the kids make snowflakes for the preschool holiday party?”  Says the innocuous e-mail to the parents of my daughter’s preschool class.  My response; a snowflake building art project with preschoolers?  An hour of my time?  A chance to look good in front…

WHO YOU ARE

You are motivated. You know where you want to go, you just donʼt know how to get there. You are ready to do the work. This isnʼt going to be painful, but it isnʼt going to be easy either.  You are willing to take an honest look at where you are and make changes to…
