Or if you’re at home working, you don’t go through your day feeling like you’ve accomplished something or achieved something, no matter what people tell you, or how much you make. So, I wrote this book as a way to say, look, I’ve been there and here are some easy steps that you can take to say, I know why I’m here now and I know I want to live in this way, and this is going to help me feel better about what I do every day.

I see you as a person who helps others rise and fly from the ashes. And she talked about the story of the Phoenix, which many of us are Photo Credit: All photos supplied by Hope LeNoir DOZ Magazine June 2018 27 «
