What matters.

I used to care an awful lot about wrapping paper, particularly Christmas wrap.  I would pride myself on selecting just the right hand crafted papers from boutique gift shops the likes of Kuhl-Linscomb and Events here in Houston.  I would pair them with fabric ribbons – never those store-bought, pre-made bows! – to complement our… Continue reading What matters.

If you’ve been following along – and thankfully many have; we’re up to over 5,000 views! – you know that I typically post something each weekend.  I skipped last weekend to treat myself to a Mother’s Day weekend in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, with my handsome, smart, sweet 20-year-old son, Burke.  Over the weekend, we moved him… Continue reading The Victim, the Perp and the Good Samaritan

Companies have advisory boards, why can’t people? Most of the companies I’ve worked for over the years have had either boards of directors or advisory boards, or both.  Companies carefully curate a group of individuals with the knowledge and expertise they, the companies, need to be successful.  This got me thinking.  If I had a personal… Continue reading Who’s on Your Board?
