My first donkey run in Grand Turk






I am going to have to come up with a pretty amazing goal in 2017 to compete with the first ever Donkey Run of 2016! I can’t wait to tell you about it!

Don’t Ditch Your New Year’s Resolutions YET!!!

by Linda Fliss






There is still hope! January 17th is unofficially Ditch Your New Year’s Resolution Day. I can’t believe that’s actually a day!

Life Coaching, Everything Changes

Life Coaching, Challenging Fear






My goal for 2014 was fairly straightforward. I simply wanted to slow my life down. I came up with 12 fairly specific ways I was going to work towards this goal that I could apply to each day/month. Pretty clear, right? My goal for 2015 is a little less concrete so I’m a little nervous […]
