So when I was asked to speak on this subject…..I had to take a second …

Quick Motivational Email From My Dad

In motivation by Michael Michelini4 Comments

I guess I am already “successful” depending on how you define it, we all are if we accept the person we are, and utilize our strengths and offset our weaknesses with good people.
