Personal Development

Wisdom sharing:

What a singular blessing, privilege and crazy wonderful experience it’s been to be the mother of a little sage, who’s grown up to be a well grounded free thinker. For years she’s taken her seat at The Well. Our daily chats, intended to catch up on life and family,  invariably evolve into subjects no one talks about so early in the morning.  In this first little volume in the Women @ The Well series, I share the essence of five such conversations.

The Top Ten Secrets of Awfully Awesome People

Personal Development

We all know someone we think is awesome.  However you define awesome, they’re it.  Can’t quite put your finger on it, but they’ve got it.  Whatever “it” is, they’ve got it.  How did they get it?  Were they born with it?  What do they know and how do they know it?  Who told them how to be awesome?  What’s their secret?

There’re commonalities among them and that’s what this book is about; ten of the extras on the inside (thought processes, habits, personal ethics …) that scream awesome on the outside.  The secrets in this book bridge the gulf between just plain awesome and awfully awesome. 

You’ve got it!  Release it!  &  Go Be Awesome!
