I love thinking, maybe too much... business life Sep 12, 2021

I love thinking... maybe too much...

But I do love it when sometimes the solution is the opposite of what might seem an obvious first solution. I find this the most fun and I have been doing this for 20ish years or so.

Are we all coaches to someone? business life Aug 23, 2021

Coaches... are we all coaches?
