Everything I need to know I learned from Mom

momHave you ever heard the expression, what would your mother say?  These words often go through my head as I make decisions and move through my day. Although my mom is no longer in this world, I still hear her voice giving me guidance and helping me deal with life’s challenges.

I was lucky to have a mom who was able to pack a ton into her day (and life).  I believe she gave me my appreciation of being organized and my passion for being productive.

So I dedicate this blog to my mom. I’d like to share some of her wisdom in the hopes it may help you get more done in your day and in your business.
