Life can be difficult at times, and the everyday grind can wear anyone down. With all the pressure that we go through everyday to be our best selves, we sometimes lose track of what our best selves should look like. My guest today, Jeanice Cummings, is someone who has been devoted to helping others rediscover who they are, and recapture their self-esteem. The oldest of 14 children, she started U Win Working With Me life coaching specializing in low self-esteem, happiness and compassion fatigue coaching. This episode brings exercises and tools one can utilize to make your life a bit happier.
