The Best Dreams Inspire You to Serve Others

The Best Dreams Inspire You to Serve Others

I’ve been coaching and teaching personal growth for more than 20 years, and I get so much inspiration and fulfillment from the work I do. Witnessing others reach for their full potential and live their dream life, and knowing that I played a part in making it happen is truly a gift. I am always happy to hear from members of One Degree Shift community.

My clients want to be active as they get older and enjoy life with friends and family. I show them how they can prevent diabetes from robbing them of their best quality of life. Who Wants to Think About Diabetes? I get it! It is hard to think about a disease that you cannot see. Of course, you can’t see the tiny blood vessels inside your body and what is happening to them. You can’t possibly know when they start leaking and oozing. You don’t imagine your peripheral nerves starting to have problems transmitting signals to your legs and feet.
