That said, our bodies need fat for insulation, vitamin and mineral absorption, and to protect our organs.  High-quality fats can steady our metabolism, keep hormone levels...

I feel fortunate enough to have participated in one of Cathy’s Teleclasses and purchased  her ADD Parental Strategies program.  I really needed my husband to understand more about ADD so we could help our son better.  The program dove into who we are as people and showed us the importance of communication between us in order to communicate more effectively with our son.  I’d recommend this program to everyone, whether they have ADD kids or not.  It’s a real eye opener!  Thanks.

What a huge difference Cathy made in my office at work!  She helped me organize the mountains of paperwork and chaos and now it looks great!  I have a system that I know will work for me because she made sure that things were organized by how I use them…everything in its place!  I value Cathy’s creativity, integrity, originality and helpfulness in all the organizing/time management projects she does.  Next I plan to take her Time Strategies program so I can get my business calendar, appointments and desk organized.  Can’t wait!!
