To get what you want, you need to know what you want. It’s even better when you can see the goals you are aspiring to achieve. On Friday, August 21, I will be leading a  fun, interactive Finding #GoalTopia Vision Board Workshop for the Women’s National Book Association – San Francisco Chapter. #GoalTopia is that magical place where you are achieving your goals and living your ideal life. Get details and RSVP.

On this week’s #GoalChatLive, I interviewed  historical fiction author Diana GiovinazzoThe Woman in Red, to talk about Persistence. Diana is also the Women’s National Book Association – Los Angeles chapter president and co-host of the Wine, Women, and Words podcast. Watch the video on Persistence and read the recap.
