Winning teams keep winning. Not just because they are better. It's also because they have a winning mindset. If you think you'll win, you are more likely to. The same goes with anything you set out to do. Believe in yourself. (In a realistic non-narcicistic way).
I was recently asked how my college experience has affected the life I lead now. I struggled to answer. It makes me realize how much all of our experiences go into making us who we are. It gives me an appreciation for the ups and downs and curves along the road. My college experience played [...]

Papers that you spent hours perfecting? Talks that you gave? Months ago, I designed a program for my health coaching practice. I spent hours creating 30 different pages and setting up [...]
