Power of Story – Book Clippings

Super book – inspired me to get the ‘kick ass club’ going and do something.   Not 100% there yet with all the things this book offers, but it has been a beautiful, super powerful book.   ========== The Power of Story: Rewrite Your Destiny in Business and in Life (Jim Loehr) – Highlight Loc. 719-20 | Added on Thursday, April 30, 1970, 03:03 PM Is your story with your children working? ========== The Power of Story: Rewrite Your Destiny in Business and in Life (Jim Loehr) – Highlight Loc. 740-42 | Added on Thursday, April 30, 1970, 03:05 PM Think...
