Opening remarks: Suit Up and Show Up
Opening Remarks: Suit Up and Show UpIt's hard to believe that less than a month has gone by since Christmas. I hope that you had a wonderful holiday season celebrating whatever occasions you observe. It was good with my family, and me, but I confess I became so busy with various things that I had to miss a month of publishing this newsletter.
Of course, everyday it is important to "suit up and show up". Now that the New Year is underway I'm renewing my dedication to sending you a monthly e-zine with some thoughtful ideas, articles and resources to help you find the best way to "tell your story".
