Why am I a credible source of goal planning? You may not know that my parents were financial planners,who began each January with a list of New Year’s Resolutions that were accomplished throughout the year. Thus, I grew up believing I was expected to set goals and accomplish them. My parents instilled a belief that I “could accomplish anything I set my mind to.” In additional to lifetime of personal well-being and overcoming obstacles and 30 years of e facilitating personal development, particularly weight loss for my clients, I truly believe that right attitude, tools and support we can each be our best.And when you’re at your best, anything is possible.
