Going Back to the Office

This time we have ample time to prepare. Unlike March 16, 2020, when everything suddenly shut down, this time is different. We’re going back to the office. I remember lockdown like it was yesterday.

Wine for Perseverance

Perseverance is key to keeping your New Year’s resolutions. I have four, which don’t exactly include wine but are attainably focused on my physical and spiritual health.

Wine for Leadership

Leadership development has always been a cornerstone of my career.

I agonized over what to write this morning, the day after the U.S. Presidential Election. I didn’t want to turn this blog into my own personal political soapbox.

Slowing Down for Summer Vacation

Summer vacation is in full swing and like many other people, I’ve slowed down a great deal – at work, at home, online, etc. It’s a time to relax and pause to take inventory of everything in your life, as well as to enjoy the here and now.
