I Love Q4 Reviews

Q4.  In the business world some people dread Q4 reviews.  I happen to love Q4 reviews.  For me, Q4 is that time of the year when I am required to look back over the preceding three quarters and see what goals I met, and what goals I missed.  The fun part for me is thinking...

Dirty Jobs

It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it.  That can be said for a lot of jobs.  Some are literally dirty.  Other jobs are emotionally dirty. I have invested my time today in one of the latter kind of dirty jobs:  advising TEDxUNLV ( https://www.facebook.com/TEDxUNLV)  applicants that their proposals were not accepted. Don’t feel...
