Goals

How many of you set goals on New Years Eve? How many of you reach your goals? Every year the gym fills up the beginning of January. Obviously, if you go to a gym on a regular basis you will notice that by the end of February the gym has thinned out again. Why is […]

Careers

So often women especially end up in jobs they either have to do due to financial circumstances or because someone has influenced them concerning their career choice. How many do you know say that what they do is “just a job”, not a career or a passion of theirs. You may think what does it […]
