May 16, 2023 – 11:30 am at Crosswater featuring guest speaker Sue Carmody, a Transition & Life Coach with over 15 years experience.  Real happiness happens when we are living our lives on purpose.  It’s true that all of us would like to live with passion, but without a strategy to carry that passion forward we are stuck with just our dreams and our unfulfilled ambition waiting to be realized.  Each of us carries that spark for a smart, innovative and inspired future, and when our ideas and our ambition come together the possibilities are limitless.  What journey are you longing to take but can’t seem to get started? Join us to gain some personal insight and guidance.
