BCWG S4:E15 J. Darrel Hicks & Dave talk about COVID-19 and best practices.

J. Darrel Hicks presented a 2-hour class on COVID-19, risk assessment, processing of surface, what W.A.S.T.E. stands for and the value of being certified to handle the issue which comes with infection prevention in both the workplace and at home.

In today’s podcast, the guys talk about the use of hand sanitizer vs. hand washing, knowing your personal space and controlling your environment.  Did you know that you touch entrance points on your face over 19 times every hour?  These are the places (eyes, nose, mouth) where infectious agents gain entrance to your body and can cause infections and sometimes death.

Here are a few links to the information Darrel and Dave spoke about.

BCWA S4:E13 Tandy Pryor talks about the power of Women in business and not giving away that power to someone else.

Have you given your power away to your family, clients, fears, your desire to be “nice”, your old stories, and your past?
“Taking back your power” looks a little different for everyone.

Being nice is all well and good, but are you being too nice? Sometimes you have to rock the boat a little to be the best advocate for yourself! The world needs leaders and truth-tellers.

When you envision your ideal self at the end of this year, what does that look like? What if this is the year that you finally transform the things in your life that no longer work? I am here to help you find your way back to INNER PEACE and SUCCESS on your own terms.
