Thoughts on what it's like to pursue your dreams--also writing, branding, & identity.



We've all been there - insanely hard times in our lives. Today Les Brown posted this on Facebook and I want to reshare this here: "You are stronger than you think you are. It doesn't matter what you are facing...a lost relationship, job,…
