are you pursuing your happyness?

Sunday, October 28th, 2007

My husband and I watched The Pursuit of Happyness last evening starring Will Smith (based on the book of the same name written by Chris Gardner). If you aren't familiar with the story, it is the inspiring (and true) rags to riches, work hard and don't give up on your dream story of Chris Gardner who, despite tremendous obstacles, became a stockbroker and later founded his own company.  For the full story, visit http://www.chrisgardnermedia.com/.

So having said that, WELCOME! I look forward to creating a forum for the creation of career dreams and life fulfillment and I look forward to many fascinating discussions with all who are looking for something greater and have the courage to step into , "What's next."   I ask for your patience and support as I take this journey into    Read More
