Maybe It Isn’t “All or Nothing”

Maybe It Isn’t “All or Nothing”

Gordon Gekko, in the movie Wall Street, taught us that, “greed, for lack of a better word is good.” Being a glass half-full kind of gal, I like to think that he meant that going after something, and working hard in order to reap the rewards is a good thing.  It is pretty hard to argue withContinue Reading

The Power of a Lasting Legacy   

The Power of a Lasting Legacy

Each New Year brings new possibilities.  Some of us set “New Year’s Resolutions”, yet less than 10% of us actually keep them.  Instead of focusing on the temporary, why don’t we focus on the LASTING? For me, this past year was both an extraordinary yearContinue Reading
