Mark Hillman, Ph.D.
My goal is to help people help themselves by discovering their core values.
Once you understand how your background has influenced you to make certain decisions in the past, then the humorous examples interwoven within the book will show you how not to trip over the same landmines.
Written with humor so "we" can relate, this interactive book is a road map (with directions) of how to get out of your own way.
