A – The biggest block I have faced was at the age of 31. I found myself in a toxic marriage, with 4 young children and absolutely no financial means. I knew I needed to get out, but I had no family for support and I was terrified to make the break and go it alone.


Q – If you had a Superpower to transform the world what would the Superpower be?

For If you have Faith, then you can find Courage to Be, Do and Go for all you desire.
