This is My Halftime Story: Dawn Atwood

By Keith Butterfield  “…You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart…” Jeremiah 29:11-14 For Dawn Atwood, seeking has never been a challenge.  “I’ve always been a seeker,” she says.  But finding God was entirely another matter – in fact, it was a nearly 20-year process. The sales director for Jay Franco and Sons, a licensee of Disney products, looks back and marvels at the multitude of times she now knows – but didn’t at the time – that He was fully present

THE “COWBOY” APPROACH TO YOUR SECOND HALF JUST DOESN’T WORK

By Jeff Spadafora, Director of Global Coaching Services Taking the cowboy approach to your second half?

His career had included early runs in marketing and sales leadership in the corporate world and then in more recent times, the pinnacles and challenges -- the “startups and startdowns,” Tom calls them, laughing – of launching and running his own businesses. His latest venture, in fact -- as a
