This year, you can actually take action on my great advice

Last year, to much fanfare, ohhhs and ahhhs, “I’m doing this next year!”, I shared a Thanksgiving lesson applicable to everyday life.

Guest Post: The Power of Perks

One of my favorite things about “going out” is the potential. For new friends, clients, opportunities, laughter, exploration, (when I was single, boys that gave me butterflies). That’s why I’d rather go to an event where I know very few people. Though yes, I have to eek! go up to people and insert myself in Read more…
