Flying in first class to Orlando yesterday, she said she’s a certified life coach and shared the highly esteemed credentials she recently received. She’s also a small business entrepreneur at age 31. Her next three days will be spent speaking at Orange County Convention Center.

It all sounded so impressive.

And then the aha moment…

The person she was talking to has been receiving his credentials from one of the World’s most admired companies for 30 years, almost as long as she’s been alive – yet he has no ‘official certification’.

The message for all of us?

  1. Life coach certification online $69.99. Just sayin’ things are not always as they appear…but you know that! Not accusing just stating an internet fact! HA ha Because if it is on the internet it is true :). Have a flan-tastic day Jeff.

  2. Donna, thank you for adding validation. And humor.

    And encouragement.

    Three great things. 🙂

    And congrats on your amazing weekend.
