This past week I went to RISE Business Conference in Charleston, SC.  I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting, but what I got was a swift kick in the booty to get out there and just be myself- my true, authentic, kind, helpful, caring but shoot it straight self.  It was three big days… Continue reading Small Steps are the Keys to Improve Health
