Hi All!

Welcome to the July, 2017 Beautiful Minds Newsletter.

Hope everyone had a lovely June! I turned 38, which caused a lot of reflection. How did I become 38? I still feel like a little child inside. But more importantly, what could the next 38 years look like for me and for the world? This is a big moment of transition for me in my life, so this birthday had me doing some deep reflection. But enough about me. I encourage each of you, regardless of whether it’s your birthday or not, to not only work on understanding who you are, but also think about what you could be.

OK, time for some goodies that happened this month:
