“My lifeline ever since I was younger was reading anything that was inspirational. I wrote my buried secrets in my diary, and sought answers to life’s struggles through reading quotes, encouraging words and anything that would help me rise above my challenges and feel peace. I’ve dedicated the past thirty years to help people develop their potential as individuals, at work, in their family lives and in their communities.”

Janet Larson, M.S., San Diego, CA
