My Autobiography in 6 Words...

Posted by SouthBrookers on October 10, 2016 at 04:06 PM

If you had to summarize your life in six words how would you do it? The most challenging aspect of the six-word limitation is that it requires you to focus on what is most important. In our So Many Options message, Charlie encouraged our community to do just that. Here are some of the six-word autobiographies:
