In 2015, my employer asked me to drive out of town to work with a new client. Unlike my peers, I didn’t take my driver’s course and test at the age of 16. I never had a strong desire to get behind a car wheel, let alone drive on a highway. So, for many years I avoided driving unless it was absolutely necessary. Not … Read More What You’re Missing Out On … and don’t even know it!

After getting a much-deserved refund, I thought to myself. Why did I trust a woman who didn’t take care of her own hair, to take care of mine?!

Stepping into YOUR Purpose Three years ago, I opened my journal from the previous year on the exact same date.
