A Motivational Kick In The Butt

The past is gone. The future but imagined. These concerns are but defenses. Nothing more.
-A Course In Miracles

I have been running my own business for about 3 1/2 years. Starting my own business was a tremendously challenging, frightening, exciting and rewarding experience.

Take Charge of Your Life

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.
