International Women’s Day 2016

Who are the most inspiring women in your life? Let me know; I’d love to hear your stories. If you don’t want to share, just make sure you let that important lady in your life know how great she is. Give her a hug.

Upon my Desk: The Reality

Never give up, or resign yourself to a negative life – you are worth more than that. Start with what is upon your desk – it’s as good a place as any. Don’t wait to be inspired – inspire yourself.

Passion: Corporate Buzzword, Creative Buzz
