Three gifts from us to you

Dear Inspiring Friends,
A warm welcome to new friends who have recently expressed an interest in INSPIRE! 
Every young person in Ojai is just one caring adult away from success. We believe YOU are that adult.
We applaud you!  We want to give you three things:
1. Our Top 3 Opportunities to INSPIRE! for November.
2. 44 Questions you can ask your kids instead of "How Was Your Day?"
3. Our free story driven, fast read, ebook, "Living A Life That Outlives You."  Here's the link  www.LivingALifeThatOutlivesYou.com 
 
Our Top 3  
1. Garden Club at Lunch at Topa Topa Elementary. Do you have a green thumb? Call Principal Dawn Damianos at 805-640-4366
2.  Winter Career Fair at Chaparral (industry specific round tables in hospitality, health care, trades, arts and entertainment), Call Principal Becky Beckett 640-4330 ext. 1960
