What if Work Gets to be Easy?

What if work gets to be easy?What if we have this whole entire concept of work totally and utterly backwards? Why do we believe that work has to be something to push for, a time for struggle and hardness to bear through, just to get by, to make a living? What if work gets to…

From Karaoke to Conferences
When I was 11 years old, I sang a Backstreet Boys song in front of 1000 people. This in itself is remarkable; unfortunately, the DJ played it for the previous group by mistake! I had two choices: shrink, or sing. And I chose…
