Do as I say, not as I do...

   In keeping with my "Do as I say, not as I do tradition"  (read about it here!/2012/07/bob-is-best-soooo.html ) since my last November blog post I have been convincing my husband to quit his job, helping 2 friends redecorate their homes, running my business through the holiday season, financing my daughter's trip to Japan and basically doing everything BUT working on getting this magazine launched.  I had a grandiose notion that my blog posts would be teasers for full fledged articles, (as the one for Beth below WILL BE DARNIT!) but, uuuhhhh  hasn't happened. 
Thinking back to when I worked in a very demanding, straight commission headhunting sales development environment, I remembered what I used to say to the staff I helped coach "don't worry the results, the only thing you can directly control is the effort, THAT's what you track.  That is what you work on.  Do the work, make the connections and the projects, the deals will come together".

So, I have made the command decision that this blog will be my public "checklist".  Please nag me if I don't keep it up, ok?
