  • Setting SMART Goals Can Set You Free - Entrepreneurs and managers are notorious for wanting to reinvent every wheel they encounter, yet some tried and true systems are well worth using – especially of they have been updated for today’s issues.

  • Conquering Cancer - From the moment a diagnosis of cancer is mentioned, life becomes very intense.  Your schedule is dictated by doctors’ appointments, surgery, chemo, radiation, you name it.  Your time is no longer your own.   You are riding a wave dictated and powered by others.  Thank goodness your doctors know what to do.  Then suddenly, it all ends.  The momentum that has carried you evaporates.  Everything has changed.  In a very real sense, you are left hanging.  And you can never go back to how things were before.   Let Anne, founder of Conquering Cancer, share her experience and that of thousands of other cancer patients with you.  Reserve a front-row seat for the roller coaster that is cancer told with humor and candor
