Learn how you can be motivated to achieve more than success

Good morning!  It's another weekend and we would like to help motivate you to have a better week next week. 
We want to introduce you to a company that has defied all of the odds to become one of Canada's most successful small businesses.  Their leader is a woman, she is blind, and she is of mixed race.  Three strikes you say?  Not so with Donna J Jodhan.  Three strikes and she is still going strong and we want to share her company's latest newsletter with you.
Have a great weekend.
