  • Effectiveness Skill

    Skill four is Effectiveness. Replace your ‘to-do list’ with a results list. Make your life as effectively as possible.

  • Persistence Skill

    The six skills that every woman needs to develop are relatively simple. You have to learn to plan.

  • Choose One Dream and Go All In

    Behaviors 2 & 3 coincide with one another. Behavior 2: Choose One Dream and Go All In is all about focus.
