Becoming a Handmade Marketplace Seller

Tools for Girls–The Superpower of Choice

  Here’s a little video I created that helps girls (and women) understand HOW they can choose their experiences.  It’s true that you can’t control what happens to you, but you CAN control HOW you interpret what happens to you.  Share and discuss this material […]
