Celebrate Your Own Freedom This Independence Day

  As a small business owner or company leader, it’s easy to let work consume your life.

The Trouble with Resolutions – Start Q2 Differently

March is a great time to talk about Resolutions… or at least why they don’t work. If you’re sticking to your resolutions for 2018, that’s awesome, but the truth is that most of us are not.
