The past few weeks my clients have been feeling frustrated and discouraged. While my client’s individual situations are quite different they have been experiencing similar emotions.
Well, let’s face it, the past few weeks have been frustrating and discouraging politically, and what I’m hearing from clients is job opportunities, job growth, and career development have taken a back seat to the turmoil we’re experiencing socially.

Let’s face it, we’re too busy discussing healthcare to maintain our actual physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
But something amazing has happened these past few weeks; individuals across the country standing up, speaking up, and showing personal courage, inspired leadership, and taking action. And that’s how we make progress. That’s how we create a better society. That’s how we create a better life.

How can you make progress? How can you create a better life? You do it by showing personal courage, inspired leadership, and taking action.

No more excuses, it’s time to make a change.
What is your step forward? Here’s some ideas:
It’s time for action. Let’s do this!
