  • Moving From Fear to Risk Awareness

    This week in my business support group we discussed risk.  I described myself as “not being risk adverse.”  Not to say I enjoy risk or that I am, as some have called me… fearless.  I am not without fear.  No one is.  Any animal, humans included, have three reactions to fear.  Fight. Flight, or Freeze.…

  • Think Outside the Box

    My morning routine is pretty set. I get up, take my son to work, go through Starbucks, come back and dive into orders, recording anything that’s waiting in the inbox before turning to correspondence.
