Spring! Best time of year award! Finally, after what seems like the longest winter on record, we can stow away the layers of fleece, gloom and fat.
This spring brings goodness galore. As you can see, I have sprinkled pixie dust on my brand – thanks to JPD Studio, my website is sparkly-fresh. And, thanks to Snow Day Works, I have more than a book in the works: friends,…
Are you SAD?
This morning, I woke up, ate breakfast, caught up on social media, fed the dog, hailed a cab & began training my first client all before the sun rose in the eastern sky.
