Who and What Matter Most to Your Family? by Kimberly Wiefling (Wiefling Consulting)

Continuing our exploration into envisioning your family’s fabulous future . . .

Step 3. WHAT MATTERS? According to a blizzard of studies, and my own observations of human beings over the past 50 years, the #1 that reason people don’t achieve their goals is that they don’t have goals. One reason?
