Parts of the book offer sound business practices, while I am not into "new age" writing, some of the spirituality aspects are not in line with my beliefs.
Margot Note
"Authenticity is a key dynamic in relationships and support systems of all kinds. People want to feel that they know who we are and what we are about. When we live a false life, it is tedious and unfulfilling, and can even be dangerous" (42).

"You cannot be successful if you cannot control your thoughts. You must tune into your passion, remember whom you are here to serve, eliminate negative programming and people, and change your internal dialogue--drastically" (55).

Read the whole book and loved it. Now I am going back through and actually doing the challenges. I didn't want to stop reading to do the work. I recommend that you do the challenges as you go though!

Audio-somewhat overly deep & very crunchy, tree hugger-ish! I'm only @ connecting to spirit as we define it.

I have been in the personal empowerment business since 1976 and feel grateful everyday to have had the opportunity to inspire and guide clients navigating the challenges of change for over 25 years. I began as a child and family therapist with a strong commitment to prevention programs.
