About Beverly

Bio

"Bev makes sense of what you can't. I knew I was unhappy and dissatisfied but I didn't know what to do - and then I met someone who told me "Go see Beverly" I did and everything changed - she tells me I did the work but I would have never figured out what I wanted to do with my life without her being there to guide me. I am living the greatest adventure of my life right now! -Gabriella F.

My passion is getting the right information to young people early enough so that they have the time and resources to "peel back the layers of their interests" and begin a process to explore appropriate career choices.

How can today's youth get involved and help initiate change in the world?
Grace - Your question about what you are most passionate can be answered. I work with young people who are trying to decide what life path to choose and the one thing that is key to making this decision is knowing about yourself so that you can make a decision based on the best information - The first thing I tell young people like you is to sit down and make a list of the 5 things you love to do more than anything else i.e "I could spend all day reading about _____________(fill in the blank), I love to write, I love to work in the yard with plants, I love to sew and design clothes, I love to work puzzles, I love to cook, I love to build things with my hands, etc. WHen you can identify the five things you love to do the most then you can begin to ask yourself - How could I make a living doing that or how could I help other people with my gifts or talents - We all look for the BIG answer but sometimes that answer is a little thing that you love to do and do well now. Maybe your next door neighbor is a single mother and you love children - volunteer to let her have an afternoon to herself once a month. IF you see an older person struggling to get their groceries in the car - go help them. Smile at someone who looks sad - start small and then you can begin to build. Use Ted to find people who are doing what you would like to do and find out how they did it. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Curiousity is the greatest tool we have. Use websites like http://sixthousand.blogspot.com/ to find out more about someone who maybe is just like you. READ - the library is the best hidden resource that you can have. Spend Saturday there just looking - Read - read - read - Remember "Those who read - Lead."

Rick Warren: A life of purpose
This is a person who has decided to be about doing good things and making the world a better place. All of us intellectuals that commented here about his "attitude" have decided that out way of doing good is to make sure we comment on everyone who does not "fit our worldview" - As for me - I have decided it that it is far too dangerous to spend time and energy being ready to throw stones.
