20 Questions to Discover Who You Are

20 Questions to Re-discover Who you are and What you Stand For

Well, it’s already August and I am finding myself saying, “What the hell happened to July?” This is my ‘Birth Week’, as my birthday is August 6th.

I was asked by our local online ‘What’s Happening’ website, Kelowna Now, to do an In Focus article on my business and career. They sent me some questions to base the article on. I found it interesting as I pondered the answers to some of the questions. So this week, I am sending you the same questions to ask yourself.

If you are interested in reading my answers to the questions, you can read the Kelowna Now article.

Please take 10 minutes and fill in the answers to the following questions and re-discover who you are. Consider this request as your birthday gift to me.
