Norma Simmons gives herself structure by using a business plan she devised in the seminar: a written description of where she wants to go and what steps she can take to get there. "It has given me a sort of glue that I need right now to hold things together," she says. Having to continually reinvent herself is tough emotionally, but Norma's accomplishments are also a source of strength. "Every day I figure out a way to make it work," she says.
