It took a long time for me to fully accept and understand that making mistakes are an important part of the learning process.

I continue to marvel at how quickly my new office is being built! I also love being able to document the process and to share it with you. I guess it brings the concept of a “virtual office” to a whole new level. There’s still no move in date, but considering the remarkable progress that the crew has made in
What a difference a few days make! Just last Friday construction began on my new suite. On Monday morning there were a team of five men working on it all at the same time. This is what it looked like yesterday at the end of the day. When you make a decision and it works out this well, you just
