The "Obstacles are the Way - Part II" was given August 11, 2014 to the SING transition group at St. Isidore Catholic Church in Danville, CA. SING is a ministry focused on helping those who are in career transition. This ministry is presently serving over 800 C-level, VP-level, managers and professionals. It was formed in 2001 in response to the high rate of job loss due to the Dot.com crash.
