Notes from Steve

“In every day, there are 1,440 minutes. That means we have 1,440 daily opportunities to make a positive impact.”~ Les Brown Lately it seems that everywhere I turn there is some kind of negativity or drama. Whether it is with the kids at home or the meetings I am in...

Notes from Steve
