What starts with F and ends in K?

FEEDBACK … of course… where was your head at? Feedback is so important for us to truly gain a sense of who we are, by validating our view of self through others. “Mirror, mirror on the wall; do I see me warts and all?” I have been telling this version of the Snow White story for many … Continued
