A few of weeks ago we asked you to tell us where in your life you’d like some guidance. And you told us. So we’ve been busy!!
The good kind of busy – the kind that feels like a privilege actually.
And again, we are grateful to you all for sharing your thoughts, wishes and curiosities and today we are thrilled to bits to be able to share with you our first ever workbook!
You can download your free copy by following this link . Of course, when you sign up, we know it goes without saying (but we are saying it anyway) that we will NOT share your email address with anyone (nor will we spam you) – promise!
Consider this our Valentines Gift to you – it’s the only way we know to spoil you and make sure you feel special. Plus we we sincerely hope it’s helpful.
Oh, and we would LOVE your feedback (good, bad or indifferent – all is welcome and helpful). We are excited to learn how we can improve! Feel free to post a comment below, or on our Facebook page at: www.fb.com/twowisechicks.

Valentine’s Day. A day to celebrate our love for those dearest to us. A time to make gestures – big and small – that show how much we care.
