Do just one thing…

I speak with people all of the time, frustrated with themselves for being unable to make a change, or unable to stick to anything to get the results they want.  Sure, life gets busy, or things happen, or our motivation waxes and wanes.  Or maybe the actions we need to take are too hard, it’sContinue reading “Do just one thing…”

10 Things to Think About Before You Open a Private Practice
