10:00   Self-care vs. Healthcare (Dependent-care)
Presented by Chriss with Great Lakes Self Reliance. 
 Life is all about the choices we make.  One choice is:  is to focus on your own Self Care instead of relying on Healthcare.  Choosing to be Dependent often causes one to be a victim of those they rely on. Take your chances or take control of your life.   Do you focus on Self Care or rely on Health Care?  This is not a yes or no question, but a continuum.  Nearly everyone is both, but now discover ways in which you can focus more on your Self Care , why, and how… so that you won’t be the next victim!
