Pink Flags

Could you use more confidence in your relationship?  Pink Flags shows you the difference between a Pink Flag and a Red Flag.  We break it down for you and we can teach you how to identify the behaviors that keep you from having the relationship you deserve.  

You can watch our blog posts and videos at Pink Flags for Kind Over Matter.  

If you're wondering what a Pink Flag is and how to use them to find the right partner and build a strong, long-lasting relationship.  As always, I would love to talk about issues that you might have regarding your romantic relationships and how they are affected by Pink Flags.  

Having a happier, healthier and more satisfying romantic relationship starts with one click.

Barbara has planned and orchestrated a variety of fundraising events and since 1999.  She has established an impressive reputation as a grant writer.  Among the more notable grants Ms. McLean has prepared have been; Title I grants from the U.S. Department of Education, those funds were used to provide elementary school children with learning essentials in a demographic with high levels of poverty and limited resources.  Grant funding was also acquired from private grant funders to help an organization provide immigrant survivors of domestic violence legal and social service support.  Working through state and local channels, Barbara helped to acquire operating expenses and construction costs to remodel an abandoned property with the intention of creating a women’s museum and drop-in center in a highly populated area of New York City.
