    Have you ever had a set of puzzle pieces but no picture so you could put it together?

    YES! Just had a coaching call with Sue Brooke. I won’t just tell it was awesome, I’ll explain why. Have you ever had a set of puzzle pieces but no picture so you could put it together? I thought I had a vision but now realize that’s only one of the pieces, along with the website, the resources, experience, training, etc. Sue sees The Big Picture. In just one session, Sue was able to take my pieces and beginning connecting them to possibilities I’d never even thought of. Just like putting a puzzle together needs a strategy, like sorting out the edge pieces, she had ideas for that too. I’m so grateful and now I can start putting the whole together instead of just collecting more and more pieces. With excitement and gratitude,
