Professional Over-Accommodating

Share this:

Professional Over-Accommodating  When people don’t own their value, they tend to over accommodate.

Share this:

Self-Imposed Identity Theft  My friend, Dr James Jackson – founder of Project CURE, learned from his father that he could take what he had and turn it into what he wanted. This bit of wisdom has served him amazingly well. Unfortunately, “take what you have and turn it into what you want” was not the […]
