Do you work like a dog?

When my husband travels on business, I find myself working all the time. I’ll wake up early with a mental list of 10 or 15 things I need to accomplish that day. Sometimes, I’ll eat all three meals at my desk, and literally work from morning until night. I caught myself telling a friend that […]

2 coffees, 3 lunches

Losing that big contract was meant to be. I guess I needed to FEEL again the rejection, disappointment and outrage my clients feel. That was more than 2 years ago, and it still stings.  A little. I wrote this article to explain how I got a new, better client in 90 days. Hope this inspires […]
