Bragging Rights

So many of us are taught to put our heads down, do good work and eventually someone will notice you, but that doesn't work in today's fast and noisy era. 
It's as if we're told to be successful, but don't talk about success. 
My book, Bragging Rights: How to Talk about Your Work Using Purposeful Self-Promotion launches on May 11. Early reviewers are giving it five-stars and are telling me they're making notes all over the book (a sign of success). 

To be successful, we need not only to be good, we also need the support of community. That's why I'm posting today. 

Kiwanis Music Festival Volunteers Needed

You will be amazed at the talent of these local Musicians. If you have questions, I can be reached at 519-570-8927.

Why Doing Your Books Brings Out Your Inner Child...And What To Do About It.

Do you remember a time from your childhood when you really didn't want to do something?
