One of the key aspects of my work with enthusiasm is to guide people and organizations in how to break through the barriers that keep them from their expression and experience of enthusiasm.
Throughout the years many people have reported that stress is one of their biggest challenges, both at home and work. What I have come to discover is that by breaking stress down into the various factors that cause it, one can then effectively handle stress. This is the primary focus of, Igniting the Spark of Enthusiasm! Discovering what to do when your get up and go got up and went. In the first part of the book you will find 11 of the more common areas related to how stress shows up in our lives. Also included are specific tips on what to do about them. The 11 areas include stress related to:
* Balancing Work and Home
