James Stover: "Dr. Wolf's (sic) courses are not only a very economical way of maintaining my RD and LD status, but are also more meaningful and very instructive to me as I obtain more educational value from self-study courses that I do attending conventions."

Diane Tryon: "Helped me think about how focused my life is right now and the use of scientific connection with goal setting and performance. Also, the need to not let fear stop an achievement I wish to reach."

Rhonda Eitsert: "I liked that the goals suggestions included social, family and spiritual. As I am nearer to retirement, my biggest goal is to make a career change to provide more life balance but the letting go and fear of change gnaws at me. This discussion on belly-fire need not be just care."

Kara Sabatino: "Goal setting is an important aspect of my counseling so reading more about structuring this and the mindset was helpful.er orientation but also life choice."
