Educational Topic November 2015

December 14, 2015 Inspiration, Networking, Personal Growth

This time of year, for me, always brings a time of thankfulness and reflection. A time to stop and be more aware of the everyday. Also, to look at my business and remember my successes and what or who contributed to it.

Our education topic was: “As the holiday season approaches, share with us 2-3 gratitude’s that bless you abundantly. Offer from both a personal and professional perspective.”
