If you talk the talk, you've got to walk the walk - Goals & Determination

When growing up, my parents had a certain saying: It’s better to get a B or C after trying really hard than getting an A without trying at all. That being said, I was a very good student but it showed the values that were important to them. I guess it’s in line with the saying ‘Hard Work Beats Talent’ and I couldn’t agree any more.

Crime in Boulder and Colorado

In this article, I would like to discuss some numbers and statistics. I personally like to be aware of these and compare them to other locations and simply reflect upon them. Helping people stay safe is truly important to us and that is why we chose to put together the most effective curriculum, so our clients learn things that they can actually use in a crisis situation.
