2019 Q4 (October-November-December) Update – Back to Work

2019 Q3 (July-August-September) Financial Update – Shame on us!
Hi dear readers, I know. We’re in 2020 already, and you read it right: this is Q3 (July-September) 2019 quarterly update, not Q4 (October-December). That’s how much I’m behind.

I did something I’m not proud of…
Hi RIP friends, I knew you would have noticed. Some of you wrote me emails, some commented on random posts. One went as far as sending me a PM on facebook. It didn’t go unnoticed, that’s the beauty of transparency! What am I talking about? This: Before moving on, I knowRead more

Coaching follow up: I have a problem now!
