My wish to all is to relax, love and laugh this holiday season. These are my plans as I celebrate being with family and friends to bring in the New Year. For those not fortunate to have those luxuries, I send love and strength to each and everyone.
Please enjoy our Friday Power Lunch 2021 Year in Review video as well as videos and more from our 5th Annual Women’s Summit. I also invite you to sign up for the 2022 Friday Power Lunches at our new link here.
