I’m Good Enough, I’m Smart Enough…

Clients, colleagues, friends, family, all people you come into contact with will judge you. First impressions are critical. You might dress nice or drive a nice car, but that is not what people are judging. Stand-up straight, smile, and give a firm handshake.  Practice walking with books on your head - good posture.  Don't slouch...wait [...]

Me TiME.

I am introverted.  I am not selfish. I need space. I need "me-time." With all the activities, work, family, etc around how many of us need "me-time?"  Me. Sleeping may re-charge some people's batteries or gathering with friends may re-charge others, not me. There are times I need silence. No stimulation (except nature), no music, [...]
