Being Effective, Not Defective

Photo by Sebastian Voortman on Pexels.com We lead people into the fray everyday. Sometimes with out any idea that we have people that are following our lead or example. Then we have a loss.

Don’t Drift, Fly!

Rarely has a single success I have had guaranteed me happiness. It takes work. Commitment. It takes confidence in what you're working through to believe it's the right thing.
