    Thank you so much for this encouragement. I am so worried about my dental practice, not knowing when we are going to be able to open again. I really needed to hear this tonight. ” Turn fear into Fuel.” That is great.

      With so much Covid-19 mess flying around and disrupting life as we knew it, if we all stepped more into the leadership lighthouse role, it would help the recovery of this country and across the globe. Harnessing leadership skills and sharing them with our co-workers, family, friends and neighbors, should be the focus we have daily.
      To Your Success

    Greetings Mr. Addison!
    Loved your Momma’s advice to act pretty (not sure if that was the exact wording). I’ve been making a special effort to be friendly and courteous to people at the grocery store as they’re in the terrible grips of fear and desparately need a smile.
