LRS Classic: The Secret to Leadership

Friday, October 19th, 2007

Tonight I shook this man’s hand. Let me say, hearing John Maxwell speak was truly an inspirational, life-changing experience. Every word he said felt like it was written just for me. And I’m sure I’m not the only one in the room who felt that way.

Thursday, July 5th, 2007

It’s the heart of the summer. Cookouts, sunshine, long days – yard work. As a new girl on the block, my lawn says a lot about me. The neighbors might not see my sparkling clean kitchen. They may not rifle through my drawers and see neat folds and organization. But my yard. That’s one thing [...]
