My book, Permission to Leap, is here!

146 days ago I boarded a plane to Seattle with the intention of writing my book, Permission to Leap. I remember the visceral fear coursing through my body and all the ‘what if’s pounding in my head.

What have you learned this year?

Is it just me or does it feel like time is speeding up? Seriously, how is it already October?

I have spent some time this week looking back over my goals + intentions for Quarter 3, and even all the way back through the entire year. To say that this year has gone drastically different than planned is a significant understatement.
