    I recently wrote a post about mistakes I've made in business. well, actually I didn't list ALL my mistakes....that would just be foolish. But I did mention one glaring example. To be fair, it's wasn't as much a mistake as much as an omission. I omitted shoes from my wardrobe as I left the ho...
    I see no point running from my mistakes. Granted, I don't send out postcards to the neighborhood relating every horrible detail of a lost deal, unhappy clients and basic errors in negotiating. But everyone knows we have them! I learned very early in my sales career that humility and honesty ...

    I had a great December...personally and professionally! I had successful closings of some transactions....smooth ones at that. My husband had some successful closings for his business. I had many wonderful family events for the holidays. It was a nice Christmas season. I also started working...
