  1. Hi Shannon, Great tips that all of us need to take to heart. Life is stressful, but we can CHOOSE how we react to life events. I liked your last tip about “watch your language”…. What we speak (and think) creates our reality. As usual, I will share this with my team. Thanks so much!!!

We can’t help getting caught up in the emotions of the moment. Until the client has been able to decompress by getting his say, he is unable to take in new information to alleviate the problem.
    The solution is to be patient and calm and listen to your client and then be prepared to help him.
