Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Myself:

    I didn't have any noise, just personal desire!

  • How I responded:

    I didn't have any noise, I just had personal desire. I knew good people who referred me and my talents until I became employed for 15 years at the company I'm at now. I also work for another law firm, part-time, from home due to good references and trust.
