Work Hard, Take a Break, Smile

Those of us charged with setting our own schedules every day are particularly prone to being workaholics (I’m looking at you, most small business owners).

5 Good Things to Love

‘Macarons, trampoline, notebooks, unicorn, dancing, bike, box’ The above is a ‘list of good things‘ I found in my work room this morning. It was written by my daughter when she was about six years old, her likes have not changed much over the past two years. In fact, I like all the things on …
