Three Things Serial: 11 – Ice Cream, Sound, Thimble

The very first “thing” in this serial (oscillating fan) sent my mind to the 1920s, providing the time-frame of the story.  For the second episode, I took a challenge from another blog, and that gave me some information about the characters.  (That was Ballerina, Fireman, Astronaut, Movie Star).  Up until now, one thing that has been missing is where the … More Three Things Serial: 11 – Ice Cream, Sound, Thimble

Oz and Accountability

Need a mid-week boost?  I’m sharing a motivational message that I wrote last year. *** Many business and leadership books, seminars, and training sessions have been built around L.
