There have been many posts about New Year Resolutions, updating business plans, and coming up with new strategies.  This is all well and good.. but how about your attitude? Around Christmas, there was a lot of stress... but people generally speaking were in a *happier/positive* mood.  Now that th...
I remember reading a blog back in November around Thanksgiving where a member wanted to know what dessert you preferred... pumpkin or apple.

For the last few weeks, I have been getting calls for donations to one charity or another.  The other day though I received a call that totally amazed me.  It came through on caller ID as "Private Number".. this is the way most calls for charity come through, so I didn't think twice. When I picke...
