My Goal for 2015

I recently read Seth Godin’s What To Do When It’s Your Turn (and it’s always your turn). The book challenged me to set some goals and make sure I take my turn. At my age, I’m beginning to realize Continue Reading…

Are you the kind of person that believes that religion is like opinions… everyone has them, but the world’s a better place if we’d all keep ours to ourselves?
