Some have learned their craft through due diligence, others try a haphazard approach, and still others forge…Continue

Tuesday after a long weekend, and I hope today, all is well. One of the more interesting things about long weekends (besides the copious amounts of food!) is that it allows most of us to hit the cosmic "reset" button and re-focus the way we approach work.
