Happy Being You!

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”  Howard Thurman This is one of the best quotes, to me, as a coach. The best thing I get to see is my clients uncovering … Continued
