“Identity is cause; 
brand is effect.”

Self-Care/Secondary Trauma
Self-care, while last, is not least.  If you do not take care of yourself, you cannot care for your clients and their needs.  Airlines safety briefings always tell you to put the oxygen mask on yourself first before those you are dependent on you.  Why? If you, being the designated leader, the expert, and the authority, pass out, then who will save you all?  Secondary trauma is the leading cause of burnout for executives and their teams.  Our Life Coach will assist you in avoiding, and dealing with secondary trauma and self-care topics.
