I caught myself doing it again, just last week.

I’m 2 days away from heading off to Italy for a looooong overdue vacation. This trip is something I’ve dreamed about for years and we finally got our acts together to make it happen.

Have you ever been in a really tough spot in your life and a book practically saves you?
Years ago, when I broke off an engagement and found myself struggling to grow my new business, one woman’s words made all the difference to me.
Her book was a real turning point — and I’ll never forget it.
