Fulfilling the Twelve Promises: Part 6

Each month, we have been updating our series on fulfilling the Twelve Promises. Now that we’ve reached June, it is time for us to focus on the Sixth Promise. The Sixth Promise is about learning not to doubt ourselves. It is about learning to accept ourselves for what we are. And if we can do…

Those who are self-employed or who work in certain fields may be familiar with the concept of branding. A logo must be representative of a company and everything for which it stands.

Fulfilling the Twelve Promises: Part 5

Fulfilling the Twelve Promises: Part 1
