{Kids Change Everything}-Guest Post

I’d like to welcome Chrissy, mastermind behind Life as a CEO who lives life as a “wife, mother, blogger and everything in between”.  Sge wrote one of the most beautifully honest posts here.

My Legacy

A friend challenged me to think about the Legacy I’ll leave behind. This is a hard one. First of all, I feel far too young to have a legacy, plus, in my own mind I haven’t done anything remarkable. But, maybe someone else will think I have. News stations actually do obits on celebrites or […]
