Personal Leadership Life coaching for Women
Most of us know deep down something needs to change, we just didn't know how to make it happen.
We are raising our families and living our lives by rules and experiences learned in childhood, and it is not satisfying.
When you develop your personal leadership you:

At FOCUSED DIRECTION, women have the space they need to Breathe, Think, and Create their perfectly imperfect lives.

I was sitting on the couch with my daughter this past weekend, and a vacuum commercial came on. It was a minimalistic house with clean lines, stark furniture, and one toy placed as if to say kids live here.

I sat down today to write about self-care and to break the belief that it's selfish. There are so many experiences we can get from this. Not to mention being a role model for what a healthy dose of caring for ourselves looks like.
That's when I wrote a thought that brought it all to light. Dispelling the idea

THEN BAM! ....
It is difficult to know how to raise your child the “right way” so we ask our friends what they do, we read, we ask professionals and good old trial and error. In the end, we just do the best we can.
