Living In The Now
If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others... I’ve been called the “Woman of Independent Means.” Funny, but it seems to capture all the vigor and verve of self-sufficiency, achievement and hard core measurable goals which marked my passage and intentions upon entering the decade of the 90s.
