Did you know you can redesign your life? Even if you are over 40?

I thought I would take some time to update you on what I have done over the last four and a half years to completely redesign my life in a way I never thought was possible. So much for those limiting beliefs we impose upon ourselves. Here's a tip: don't wait as long as I did to do all of the things you never thought were possible. Here's where I was right before I turned 40: • Working full-time and driving over an hour into a busy city to teach through our University grant program in 3 different city schools....
