Productivity....or is it?

I have been swept up in a productivity craze for ten years, and the associated technology one needs to manage this complicated life.

Sponsorship
Sponsorship

I have been working with a well-known Mazda dealer on a sponsorship package for the Zoom-Zoom club. A sponsored partnership with a local Mazda dealer is a significant benefit for a motley crew of Mazda MX-5 owners like us.

Leadership

For the past two years, I have been fighting what I consider the good fight at work, brought in as an agent for change where change was desperately needed. And the good fight has produced some great results, including a team of highly functioning professionals, who deliver on what they...
