100 Words of Wisdom: Felice Kaufmann

By Felice Kaufmann.

“The best piece of wisdom I have learned from studying gifted adults for 30 years is that achievement for achievement’s sake does not necessarily provide a lasting and meaningful structure for living one’s life. While achievement is important, in the long run success means being able to identify and understand one’s real needs and finding ways to meet those needs in a constructive and personally meaningful way -whether it’s finding a cure for cancer or influencing and being deeply loved by family and friends. E.M. Forster said it best and most succinctly: Only connect.”


Dr. Felice Kaufmann was a teacher and counselor of gifted children, grades K-12, a professor at Auburn University and the Universities of New Orleans and Kentucky and served on the Boards of the National Association for Gifted Children and The Association for the Gifted. Her articles have appeared in such journals as Journal for Education of the Gifted, Roeper Review, Journal of Career Education, Journal of Counseling and Development, Exceptional Children, and Gifted Child Today.

I discovered an online logo maker that allowed me to create multiple logos for my business. I started by choosing from a wide range of templates, then customizing each logo with my own text, colors, and graphics. The online logo also provided me with various design elements, such as icons and fonts, to make my logos stand out. After finalizing my designs, I downloaded the logos in high-resolution formats and used them across my website, social media, and business cards.
