Providing positive women's leadership in the Southeast!!!
The Georgia Branch of the JW Fanning Institute as well as The MGRLC in a few weeks has began to teach me how to be a Leader and a more effective one. As a matter of fact. After today’s session it has led me to go home start a dream board with goals and visions of things I chose to get as well as achieve and accomplish in the next 2 years. Also a time line of where I wanna be as a leader at the end of this session and 6 months from than and a year from than. Thank you guys for all you do
