Identity: Passport To Success by Stedman Graham aligns with my ideal that knowing your purpose and reinventing yourself on a regular basis is the key to life. The voices of women are so important in this day and age. But Stedman Graham hits the proverbial nail on the head, when he...

It's a measure of how busy I am lately that I'm only now, two and a half weeks after the fact, managing to get my post about Ad Astra finished.  But I was determined to give at least a few of my impressions about one of my favorite regular conference/conventions: 1.  As always, the panel...
