I wanted to thank you so much for your help the other day! I feel lucky that I was able to speak to a parent and an education expert at the same time. I appreciate the information that you provided and your words of wisdom regarding both the open enrollment process and school years in general. I particularly love the idea of ‘homework time’ for the whole family! -L.H. / one-on-one parenting coaching call


Wow – I really needed this today. You must have known :). Been burning the candle at both ends for weeks now and really could use some self-care. -S.B. / [In response to a Bold Living Today eLetter]


Thank you again for facilitating the group last night. It was wonderful, and has left me with a lot to reflect upon. I really appreciate the gifts as well. The prosperity candle is intriguing…can’t wait to try that.

You are an amazingly skilled, grounded, centered person and a true inspiration. What a way to begin my weekend.

Hope to connect with you again soon, -J.B. / In response to a Girls’ Night In event
