words

WELCOME
TO MY WORLD

When I was only ten, I learned how to type on a manual typewriter. A-S-D-F...J-K-L-;...since then, I’ve written over 2,000 blogs and enjoy sharing my words with others.

Amazing Grace

Writing
When I first started my entrepreneurial journey, I bought a used copy of Oh, The Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss. I’m thankful it was a used copy. When I cracked it open, I saw a beautiful letter written to the prior owner. It seemed the book was a gift for.

Divide and Conquer

Writing
There's never a great way to begin a blog. At least, I've never found a compelling way to do so. Most of the time, I don't have a clear picture of what will be written ahead of the initial dive (date) with my keyboard. A lot of things are happening.
