Coaching Spotlight
Hear what Linda has to say about coaching!
" I am excited to share that I was awarded the scholarship, and will no longer have to stress over school payments or take time-off due to financial pressures.

 I will be able to graduate without a large amount of debt/loans and start a successful career. This accomplishment has been a big milestone in my life, and I feel proud of the work that I put towards making it happen . The support of my coach allowed me to tap into my potential, and our meetings (and emails) kept me accountable and disciplined to achieve results".

What are you grateful for?
Practice gratitude and create a habit that allows you to focus on the positive in life!

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ― Melody Beattie
Try this simple activity that will help you identify what your grateful for and make steps towards recognizing the positive.
