“Your impatience and Hyper-focus will become your super power” THAT is what I would tell my 12 year old self.

“Don’t worry that you can’t spell. Computers will solve that for you...Oh and it’s called dysgraphia and ADHD. You are not weird, or slow, you just learn differently.”

It took me 46 years to have a name for how I think, learn, and process information. Nope. Spelling tests in school do not matter. Nor do scores on a school report that test for memory. Our education system is broken. Unless you are neurotypical.

I’ve been working on the most profound project with my client retailer francesca’s® on their new tween range #franki where we unleash the possibility for tweens. It made me realize that we have far more control in how we shape our future through the tweens in our lives.

??Show your true self.

??Unleash the real you.

??Don’t worry about what others think.

That’s what I’d tell Val age 12.

What about you? - What would you tell the 12year old you? I’d love to hear.

There is a lot we can learn from our 12 year old selves.

Dedicated to growing your business,

Val
