We are unique, treasure it!

We all know life is precious and finite, but as John Lennon said in his song Beautiful Boy, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” Modern life is busy.  We are working harder and harder.  There are so many things which demand our attention.  There are so many things happening…

Becoming a pro…

No one ever starts off as an expert.  To become an expert in your field and be deemed a professional requires training, effort, determination and experience. Sonya and I come across people all the time who say, “Oh, I’d love to do what you do.  I can type.  I’d love to work at home.”  While…

Looking back over 2018, there have…
