A 12 Step map to living your purpose.
I am learning how to find my purpose and in this search I want to share what I have learned in reading a article by Paula Boon. In her article she talked about how every January we tend to make new year resolutions and get a wave of ambition and desire to lost weight or make money or find that dream job. But its hard to do when all those plans and schemes are swirling in our heads. With internet marketing or MLM we can get side track if we don’t start making money fast, we tend to quite. Here’s a 12 step road map to get exactly where you want to go this year.
