Your Best Year Yet - Strength

“I was always inspired by my grandmother who lived a life of self-reliance, tireless service to others and financial responsibility. Her husband died just before she gave birth to their second daughter. Suddenly a single parent, with the support of her sisters, she sent both of her daughters to college and then retired by the age of 42 with two homes! I traveled with her during the summer months and she always encouraged me to take opportunities. Her situation was born out of necessity, but she taught me that we all possess strength and the ability to not only survive, but to excel. She even enjoyed the arduous journey.”
