Positive influence is when we want to convince others to help us make changes that ultimately make our world a little better.  Versus changes that just benefit us, and screw the rest of the world.  Nelson Mandela -- positive influencer.  The creator of the tide pod challenge, just an influencer.

This is a shame because people also seem to equate summer with self-care, including getting much-needed rest and relaxation. So we wondered -- what if we do a whole workshop on how to get self-care time into your life? Especially self-care that takes advantage of the things that summer has to offer: Easy access...
