It’s Friday…Ready for Monday?

Smile, it’s Friday!  To most entrepreneurs that doesn’t usually mean your week is “over”.  Let’s face it, it’s never really “over”, we just take a break.  We celebrate our successes along the way, reduce the number of...

Get Up, Dress Up and Show Up

Finding Respect at the Dinner Table

One of the set family rules in our house is that we all meet for dinner at the same time and the same table.  We have done this since our kiddos were born and it is a staple in our house.  This may seem a little “old school” to some with our chaotic lives...
