21-Day Challenges

Believe me; having big, courageous goals can be intimidating and a bit unbearable.

A Better Way

The New Year is finally here and I want to share with you a simple process to reflect upon your life, where it’s been, and where it’s going. There’s a phrase that the late Steve Jobs said so often that it became his mantra and helped him build Apple…

A Good Reason

Aristotle believed that everything happens for a reason… and that every experience in your life was designed to shape and reform you into the greatest version of yourself.

Based on my personal experience, I would have to agree with him.
