Enjoying a break from business, Allison and I savored dinner and drinks at a local restaurant. Returning from the ladies room, she reported in stressed tones that an entire table of ladies turned and stared at her. Allison is lovely, so I wasn’t surprised at the attention. She however, was in fight mode. Immediately… Continue reading Judging and Comparing

Educate, connect, network, have bacon-filled morning meetings, dream big… Continue reading Ten Lessons from Year One.
