“Its time for the boys to put away their toys and come on in”
Well, that got my attention. It does looks that way when you think about it.
A little back story.
This past weekend, I was at the SCMA conference where I got to listen and meet William Ury, Author of “Getting to Yes,” Adviser to the Columbian President, Internationally renowned Negotiator…!
Okay…you get it. He is a serious and famous fella.

Someone! Anyone – has to pay the price to build it.
Once that happens, then that volunteer can return to dreaming and journeying to establish personal visions in whatever field they chose or began.
In this post, I share one of my favorite examples. It involves soccer. More than that – women’s soccer. I was raised by women, cared for by women and supported by women. Plus, my brother played professional soccer in Europe.
