I’ve learned that people come into your life for many reasons. God uses people for a specific purpose. Many times that purpose is not revealed for years to come. Reflecting back on my adolescentlaptop years, I realized that God placed an extraordinary woman in my life, my mathematics teacher Mrs. Williams.

I’ve been going at this site the entire day. Updating to the new wordpress, changing the layout and installing plug-ins left and right. I love the New WordPress, but I blame it for using up all my time today. Or should I just blame myself for sitting here.

It’s the number one bitch-session complaint online: “I do everything I’m supposed to do. I write blog posts, I’m on Twitter, I’m on Facebook, I’m doing everything I’m told, but I’m still not making any money online. What am I doing wrong?” Sound familiar?

She guided us through some exercises to help us determine the life we wanted to live so we could set goals that would have the desired end result.
