Learn about whether a life coach, a credentialed professional trained to help clients find new inspiration and a fresh perspective, might be the right option for you in “Coach in a Clutch.”

The article also includes tips for recognizing whether you are in an abusive relationship and information for how to get help.

The articles in this issue provide the reflection and motivation to allow you to identify and work toward your goals. Remember, it’s never too late to start a new dream!
