Each year I choose one word that will provide inspiration for each and every day. This year my word is “BELIEVE.”

Inspiration and guidance for my personal life. Inspiration and guidance for my business life. Inspiration and guidance for the well-being of others. So here are words of wisdom from some of my favorite writers and speakers that I have chosen to remind me to believe as well as to provide inspiration to have confidence during the journey in the year ahead.
