THIS memory will be etched in my head forever… My feet running down the wooden dock of a tiny lake in the middle of coastal New Hampshire… pushing off and launching myself into the twilight colored sky. My arms and fists naturally went straight and strong into the air with the realization that I was leaping toward a new feeling of freedom. Freedom to let my light shine. Permission to give, serve, and live life in a bigger way than ever before. And in that two-second leap from the dock, my 2017 vision board came to life. ✨Read more on the blog today (link in profile). ✨What are YOU ready to leap toward in your business? I’d love to hear.
