HELLCAT: LIVING THE DREAM
There are a few pat answers we use, merely out of habit, when someone asks, “Hey, how are you doing?” One of those habitual responses is the number one killer of confidence, and ultimately hope, in that it dismisses and diminishes our stories of resilience. Hellcat will take you on a journey through her stories of resilience and show how you can speak, think, and use your stories of resilience to build confidence and hope for the future, one thought at a time.
