What have you collected over the last year? We all do it. Some collect wines, squirrels nuts, maybe business cards? Take a look at your collections and do something with them. Use it, share it, consume it, or file it… but do something. That way you can hit the ground running in 2014 without the […]
Now is a time of reflection. Not only is it a time to look back but look forward. If you are looking back, what things have you learned about yourself and your business over the last year? If you are looking forward, how can you take what you have learned and use that to grow […]

Sometimes it makes sense to split up and talk amongst yourselves, and other times it makes sense to come together and embrace common grounds!
The spirit of Santa is everywhere. He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake. But more importantly… he brings presents to everyone and expects nothing in return.
