Join us for this week’s rainmaking recommendation from trainer and coach, Jaimie Field. *** This Rainmaking Recommendation is a result of a Facebook posting in which someone I know said it was no one’s business whether or not they were going to receive, or had received Covid Vaccines.  And while I agreed, it is no one’s business unless you make it their business, I also said that I was so excited to obtain my inoculations…
