20 YEARS – Looking Back, Moving Forward

Sept. 27, 2018, Vol.16, Issue 5 “If it doesn’t work out, you can always wait tables.” That was the advice doled out to me twenty years ago when I decided to go out on the skinny branches and start my own speakers agency.

Bon Appetit to Choices

Nov. 17, 2017,  Vol.15, Issue 9 Starting next week ’tis the season of food, food, and more food. And these days, that means more people with food sensitivities in the mix. A few weeks ago, I found myself creating a family dinner that included a mix of diners who were gluten-free, vegan and nut-free (allergic)…. read more

Speak Well Being Group

Oct. 19, 2017 Vol.15, Issue 8 Since I last wrote, I’ve been on vacation in Michigan for almost two weeks, and then on a field trip to Bismarck, ND, where long-time client Reach Partners hosted their annual Women’s Health Conference.
