Stand up & Speak your Passion

All great ideas start somewhere.  While the seed for my study of personal sustainability & resilience was sown much earlier, this presentation of my work was my first big milestone.  I’m proud of it, but it also makes me laugh when watching…in a ‘puts hand over eyes’ ‘did I really just say that?’ ‘I look […]

Be Positive, Smile & Make it Count
