I have SOMETHING to say!

After the desecration of our nation’s Capital, I received a text from my dear friend, inventor, Joel Hodroff. In his text, he posed and answered a question: How do we address the fear and polarization caused by recent events in Washington and other violent events that many people consider important actions on behalf of their issues? The abbreviated solution: a major shift in what we place value on so we can transcend inherited paradigms that put simply, don’t work (and never did).

Our crew participated in a Power Path Goal Setting program in November, conducted by Trish Perry of Harmonize Coaching. In this episode, Trish talks about how we arrived at our goals.

These group sessions helped us clarify and push the limits of our desires for life, family and business based on our values.
