Playing the Victim Card As dramatic as this title might seem, it gives me great joy today as I begin to write. I had one of those “aha” personal growth moments yesterday.

This past weekend I had a ball leading a group from my community to create their vision boards. It’s so much fun to start a new year with a vision of how you want things to be. I am so inspired by these amazing coaches who have visions of bringing their passion and expertise to
