Denola M. Burton

If you really knew me, you would know a lot more than what is visible on the surface. You would know that a lot of my life has been filled with ups and downs, of challenges and successes. You would know that there were many lessons learned through the course of my life and that there is a strong legacy. Denola shares inspiring experiences from her life, the lessons she learned from those experiences and the legacy that she leaves for her friends and especially her family.

“If You Really Knew Me: The Life, The Lessons, The Legacy” provides a touching, funny, inspirational, in depth overview of various chapters of Denola’s life, with the goal to encourage you to look at your own stories and experiences that have made you the person that you are. Once you begin to reflect on those experiences, you will see that you have also learned lessons along the way, and that those lessons have helped you establish your own legacies that can impact others long after you are gone. Enjoy the stories, enjoy the lessons and begin to develop your own legacy! Volume 2 contains BONUS CHAPTERS for you to enjoy.
