How Do You Want to Change the World?
I would like to change the world by helping others find their greatness: what they are most inspired to do, accomplish, or achieve. I enjoy assisting colleagues, friends, and family to recognize their own particular “super powers” and to help them find a means of aligning those special abilities with professional or personal interests.
