Happy Thanksgiving, giving thanks.

I want to take a few moments to wish all of my readers, listeners, colleagues, clients and friends, a very happy Thanksgiving.

The Thanksgiving holiday is a good time to consider all that we are thankful for, and to express that gratitude.

Personally, I am blessed with a marvelous family.  My  beautiful wife, three wonderful children, parents, sisters, cousins and the rest  are among the most important people in my life, and for their health, happiness and well-being, (and my own) I am truly thankful.

Similarly, I am grateful to all of my friends and colleagues for their friendship, support, referrals and help in growing my practice.  To my clients, I give thanks for your continued patronage, and for making my work interesting, enjoyable and fruitful.

Finally, I must give thanks to our wonderful country.  For all its flaws, the United States remains a great country.  It truly is a land of opportunity, and for the opportunities presented to me as a citizen, I am grateful.

May your Thanksgiving holiday be filled with laughter, joy and warm feelings  for all.

Gobble Gobble!

It’s a tragedy that the headline of this story even needed to be written.  But it did.  Desperately. By now, we’ve all heard about the truly despicable behavior of some hollywood heavyweights. Men in power abusing that power to take advantage of, demean and humiliate women. And we’re learning just how persuasive this kind of… Continue Reading
