Thoughts From the Coffee Table: I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want. I belong to an entrepreneur group at the Pyramid Club in Philly. During my first meeting, the chair Don Campbell asked us, during introductions, to state clearly how the group could help us with our businesses. I’ve thought about […]

Thoughts From the Coffee Table: I have a Sixth Sense about this. I was talking to a colleague recently about his business.

Thoughts From the Coffee Table: Celebrate Excellence!  My hubby and I just returned from a glorious holiday. On a trip once to London, we heard “holiday” used for what we would call vacation. It stuck with us, reminding us to celebrate time away. Although we packed a multitude of amazing memories in our days abroad, […]

Thoughts From the Coffee Table: Distance gives you perspective. Close inspection provides clarity. I just returned from nearly a week at the #Influence19 National Speakers Association annual conference, and once again, my perspective has been transformed. Taking time out to work ON your business rather than IN your business is critical. Operating in the day […]

Thoughts From the Coffee Table: For the love of chocolate. A few years ago my husband went to Japan on business, and he returned with the best airport gift ever. Two boxes of Royce Nama chocolate. Little pillows of melty fudge, I was transformed. We limited ourselves to only one per day, savoring every glorious […]
