Finding Your Pearls

The company, Finding Your Pearls Life Coaching, is named after the metaphor of the pearl creation. A grain of sand irritates the oyster which then transforms it into a beautiful pearl. Like that grain of sand, life has its irritants, challenges, and obstacles. These "irritants" can develop into beautiful "pearls" of opportunities. What "pearls" do you have hidden inside of you?
