This is the guilt pen. I forgot it at a client’s office one day, and when I came back, noticed it on her desk. “How’s your blogging going?” I asked. “Slow,” she replied. “I just can’t seem to sit down and do it. I’m more motivated when you’re here to push me.” I noticed my… Read more »
Gilda’s Club Name Change?
How do you feel about the imminent change starting in the Madison Gilda’s Club organization to the Cancer Support Community?

Do you have trouble focusing?
In a two-hour delay at LaGuardia, I wrote up a 400-word interview, 2 blog posts for my business and one for my personal blog.
