Sometimes tragedy occurs, like the horrific shooting in Orlando, Florida, when we may not know anyone who was injured or killed in the mass shooting. What can we do? Mary Hayes Grieco suggests bumping up your commitment to be a good person and do world peace as we go along. Heal those in front of you and around you. We can’t be everywhere so she describes how she best serves the world by being where she is, help those around her, and believe in humanity any way.
During our second of three mentoring sessions, Mary describes why people hold on to grudges. Uncover why you hold on to grudges. What happens to the rest of your life when you release a deep seated wound?
Gain insight into her background and reconnection with her birth daughter. How she persists with achieving goals while under personal and family distress. The peace and despair she feels around business planning. And, hear the advice Nancy offers to facilitate Mary’s need to reframe her thinking about business planning and sales.
