How To Have A Strategy For Your Life
Boundaries Are Strategic
Businesses have strategic plans. A strategic plan is a deliberate and intentional plan for each step of a business or endeavor.

How to help the child of divorce who has been gone all summer

Tonight is a sad night. It’s the night before I’m putting my pup to sleep. She has been with me through a lot. We brought her home the night after my father’s surgery at Mayo. I remember it as if it were yesterday, but in reality it’s been 11 years ago and a lifetime in tears.

But I was needing something that specifically addressed what I was currently going through; loneliness, confusion, anger, hurt and help with answering the millions of questions my children had for me everyday.
