THE SECRETS OF MY SUCCESS

And the Irony of it all

One of the secrets of my success I suppose is that I can get really excited about a project I am working on. In this case, it is not money that is a root of some evil but rather a motivator.

When the going gets tough

Ok, I think this post may be a little bit easier to write up somehow. Because today I am just going to be keying in the words just as they come to me. Here, it is weekend, and all my clients, well, there are only two of them really at this point in time, well, and they are probably having a well-deserved rest. I am thinking a lot lately about the vagaries of daily life. Read more
