personal development

Personal Development was formally introduced to me in October 2013 when I began Coaching with Beachbody. It is one of their Four Vital Behaviors for their Coaches. They believe, me, that developing yourself is one of the best ways to be of service to others. I would like to further that by saying that it makes you a better person all around to just put goodness out into the Universe!

I have always been an avid reader and had no idea that some of what I was doing would be considered personal development. I just happen to be one of those people that has a need, love, and desire for information. In my many years of reading I have come across some of the most inspirational, enlightening, motivating, and educational books. I would love to share them with you all in hopes that it provides you with some insight on your journey through life! You will find a very eclectic mix of books in my collection that surely have opened my eyes and my mind to the many crevices in the world.
