I Have No Good Ideas

How do you know an idea is good unless you share it?  Working in digital marketing, advertising and product development you see many an idea floated or sometimes even crammed down someone’s throat.

Current Status: Borrowing Luck

When I was a little girl my mom’s nickname for me was worry wart because I worried about everything. I chewed my nails down to the nub worrying about my grades, even though I got all A’s.  I even worried about my dog getting taken by the Sausage Man when she was outside late at […]
