I couldn't wait for success, so I just went right ahead without it - Jonathan Winters

This morning I had what was probably the most productive business planning and introspection ever. And I was at the beach.


My oldest wanted a beach day with a friend (well friends, but scheduling didn't work out) without her younger siblings tagging along. So off we went this morning. While the girls used their boogie boards in the surf and had fun I was reading and listing to podcasts on my ipod. Having time to read and listen is RARE for me.

Celebrate Independence Day Safely

Many of us celebrate July 4th the same way ... BBQ's with family, watching the fireworks and going to parades. Depending upon your plans, a little planning ahead can keep it safe for everyone.

Make sure to have a garden hose or bucket of water handy for emergencies.
