Greetings! Ugh…dieting. No one wants to diet. Even the word has the word DIE in it! Dieting means deprevation, starvation and no fun. Do you think of Biz Planning that way? “Oh, I HAVE to get a business plan together. Ugh.” Instead of dieting, consider eating well and thoughtfully and joyously. You’ll probably lighten up [...]

Then, a miracle happened. I looked out of my hotel window...and right across the street was a Saks Fifth [...]
