Time to say Thanks!
Today, Sunday, I am thanking some people, and I will try to do this throughout the week.
I met a wonderful lady for coffee on Friday. Jean MacDonald is a speaker and a business coach. She is actually a Distinguished Toastmaster (or DTM), and she speaks to organizations and businesses all over. I have seen her speak, and she is professional, motivating, informative and fun! If you or anyone you know is looking for a speaker for an event at your company or organization, I highly recommend Jean! Her website is at www.NetworkConnectSucceed.com. Her phone is 847/816-6764. Give her a call!
I am especially thankful that she networked with me on Friday and provided both a sounding board and some much needed wisdom!
I also want to give a shout-out to Mischief’s Brewing, a great little coffee & tea shop, at 725 North Milwaukee Avenue, in Libertyville, IL. They have a wonderful, friendly ambiance, a very interesting menu, and lots of cool things on the walls! The staff is exceptional. Check it out! www.mischiefsbrewing.com.
The poem shown above, titled “The Way of the Artist,” was written a couple of years ago in honor of my cousin, Richard, a talented artist who sadly died too young. RIP Richard.
