2017 Book Review Roundup Part 4

I love sharing with others what I am reading and what some of my favorite books are.  I just finished my 25th book for the year, which sounds crazy even to me.  People ask me all the time, when do you find time to read?  Margins, read in the margins of your day whether it's... Continue Reading →



Post-it. A post-it is generally used as a reminder; a 3x3 yellow piece of semi-sticky paper.  It's been said that these little squares are "surprisingly persuasive."

Real Talk

Ok people, time to get real.  I have something that's been weighing heavy on my heart for a while now and it's time I speak out about it.  I have not always been this opinionated, stubborn yes, but opinionated not so much (here's looking at you, age 32).  I can no longer sit idly by...
