You are the company you keep

I’ll be honest, socializing isn’t entirely my thing. I always feel great after I do it, but the starting is a lot harder than the finishing. I work in a job that is constantly dealing with people. Constantly. And those dealings are related to sensitive topics like work schedules and …

Things we’ll do this month: July

July. That means we’re over the hump for 2017. We’re closer to the end of the year than we are to the start of it. Now would be a great time to check in on New Year’s resolutions and see how they’re coming along, maybe change your strategy or focus …

Maybe you’ve heard of this, maybe you haven’t. I just caught wind of it a few weeks ago and then I learned much more while we were at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Seattle last weekend. Did you know that when you stay at a Westin Hotel you can actually …
