Hello Sharon,
Great greetings too,I am still benefiting through the on line classes.As we have been participating in the mentor series it has been very helpful for us since we are able to know the challenges in some of careers and also the advantages.Since I changed my career from electrical engineer to law ,I liked how the advocate said.I am still working extra since I understand it is through working extra one can succeed.At home we have a farm where we grow maize,beans and other crops we are still preparing that farm waiting for rain season.

I am still reading so as to achieve the goals.
