Here’s the secret to living your best life – there is no secret.

What you do need is a willingness to be open to a new level of self-awareness and apply your unique talents. Use them every day in your relationships at work and everywhere else.  Thomas Edison said, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”

I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Masters of Behavioral Science. During this time I married my college sweetheart, and now it’s been 35 adventurous years.
