Debra Eckerling (author of Your Goal Guide)discusses with her special guests what resilience means to them.
Sharing perspective – as well as tips for developing resilience – were this week’s #GoalChatLive guests Howard Brown and Mindy Corporon. A serial tech entrepreneur, Howard is a two-time cancer survivor, advocate, and author (Shining Brightly). Mindy is an entrepreneur, thought-leader, and author of Healing a Shattered Soul
– My Faithful Journey of Courageous Kindness after the Trauma and Grief of Domestic Terrorism.
Both were extremely candid in discussing what resilience means to them, and how they found the strength to move forward when faced with extreme challenges and trauma.
“In April 2020, everyone learned what Howard and I already knew,” Mindy said.
An important point, Howard added, “It’s okay not to be okay.”
Becoming resilient is a process. It’s a muscle you develop over time. Take care of yourself. Look for – and accept – support. And find reasons to be grateful.

A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals
Start with a plan. One of the biggest reasons goals fail is that we often don’t put enough thought into what we really want before diving in. Your Goal Guide by Debra Eckerling starts with that first, crucial step: figuring out your goals and putting a plan in place. As a professional writer, communications specialist, and project catalyst with more than 20 years of experience, Eckerling is prepared to help you achieve success.
