How Potentia Came to Be

I had been listening to Melissa Jonsson’s webinar while driving and as she’s talking about potentia being the root word for power, a shooting star with a green tail shot straight down in front of me. I thought, what a cool word, if I ever open up shop again, I think I’ll name my business Potentia.

And so it is.

Thank you to all of my teachers and guides who have opened the path for me along the way.
