> topic Description:

We encounter many types of people in our lifetime; some good and some not so good. I call those people dream makers and dream killers; we all have them in our lives. But remembering who you are at all times will help you navigate those relationships and life. We will walk through some of my life experiences, the choices I made and the people who influenced me. We will laugh and have a good time riding the rollercoaster of my life.
