Are there some goals in your life that seem possible in principal, but elude you in reality? Do you sometimes delay getting started or distract yourself with busy-ness instead of applying yourself?

How to be happy? Start purring as soon as you open your eyes We recently adopted two rescue cats. (Non-cat people, bear with me.)

I'm about to start working on a project to help women in senior positions in corporate organisations step up their public speaking and visibility to create more impact and lead change.
