After the service, I had quite a few people ask me for a copy of my speech. Below is the tribute I shared with our family […]Continue Reading... 8 Comments.
We each have unique personalities that shape our life’s journey. I’ve always been vocal, outspoken and action-oriented. I dream big and jump quickly. Sometimes it gracefully works out the way I hoped; most times, however, the journey takes a few loop-the-loops and crazy spins before I reorient and remember life is a roller coaster and […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.

What’s not entertaining are actual […]Continue Reading... 6 Comments.
I slid into the halfway mark of 2013 in style by finishing up my part of the European leg of Beyonce’s “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” working with a fantastic group of people. When I started the year that wasn’t even in my scope of possibilities. But, as a freelance marketing expert I open […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
