Have you ever felt you wanted a fresh start or a new beginning in life? (A mulligan, for you golfers!)
“It’s not too late to become who you want to be. I hope that you live a life that you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you find the strength to start over.” –F. Scott Fitzgerald, writer & author of The Great Gatsby
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
I know exactly how that feels!
In 2007, I started college for the first time…at the age of 44! (I know what you’re doing. You’re counting the years to see how YOUNG I am, aren’t you?! Lol!)

I highly recommend taking these informative assessments. They will enlighten you...

He had to keep doing his carpentry side job because acting career wasn’t supporting him like he had hoped. Years later, the same director “accidentally” bumped into the now 35-year old while do woodwork at a studio. He remembered how the young man had been in a small role in his previous movie and asked him to audition for his new show he expected to do well. He did…and the rest...
