There is a crack, a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.
Leonard Cohen, (as frequently repeated by my mother)
What drives me is knowing that there is the possibility for happiness, health and purpose after the proverbial shit hits the fan.
- Truly believe–and not just give lip service to–the reality that the client is the expert.
- Avoid the labeling that can happen too frequently and easily.
