What a way to wrap up the year and move into 2020! Yesterday, I had the opportunity to attend a vision board party where Les Brown inspired us far beyond the few minutes that he intended to speak. If you don't already know, I am a HUGE Les Brown fan!!
For those of you that are also Les Brown lovers the video is attached in FaceBook and at the bottom of this post. The sound isn’t great on this video and I’m working to improve my FB Live skills (LOL). So below, I summarize points from his presentation and also link (at the bottom) to resources he referenced throughout his presentation.
I hope you enjoy…. there is a gem for each of you in Mr. Brown’s presentation.

I didn't have the opportunity to take a photo with Mr. Brown at the event, but my excitement was just the same as when I met him at the airport in August this year.
