No matter what your age, no matter how “unattainable” your dreams … You can create — and live — a life you love! So says Barbara Sher, and she sets out to show you how to do that in this book. “I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was guides you, not to another unsatisfying job, but to a richly rewarding career rooted in your heart’s desire. And in a work of true emancipation, this life-changing sourcebook reveals how you can recapture “long lost” goals, overcome the blocks that inhibit your success, decide what you want to be, and live your dreams forever!”

    I am looking for an enamel plaque that says, “Who were you before you put yourself last?” I thought it was a quote by Mary Anne Radmacher, but she says it isn’t. Can you help me?

      I don’t know if I replied to you or not. I have that plaque but it does not have attribution on it. I’ve seen it listed a number of ways online. Wish I could help. I do love the sentiment!
