Firing on all cylinders

It’s the time of year for reflection and correction. (Not that there is a bad time to do it- ever.) No matter how good we are, we all “miss the mark”. We need to find advisors who will tell us when we are no longer wearing clothes, to insure we convert our vision to reality. Continue reading
