Candy’s Corner – August 2015

Candy’s Corner – from the desk of the Visions Anew Executive Director

“Thank you, Candy.
I can’t tell you what a tremendous resource I think your organization is offering to the world.  Like probably most people who come to you,  I never expected to want or need the kind of info you offer, and so I have been completely in the dark and mostly on my own in terms of figuring things out, much less hatching a strategy.  Now I feel so much more equipped….which doesn’t help the part about not wanting to be “here” but does help face the reality of “here” with more confidence and feeling more equipped.”
