When I ask Morgan, our Springer Spaniel, “Are you ready?” her enthusiasm knows no bounds and she is at the door, poised and ready for action. In her case, this will likely be leaping and yipping, because she knows something is about to happen and she is ready to go! My question to you is, […]

About three years ago, I decided to start a business to business networking group that I named Strategic Business Circle™.

Last year, I attended Caterina Rando’s Global Love Day (GLD) event and Caterina asked me to be one of her four speakers at her Global Love Day event last month. At the time I was honored and very excited to be offered this opportunity. Over time I put some thought into what I would say, […]
