I do not have anyone coming to my house for Thanksgiving dinner this year, so I have had time to reflect on what I…Read More

2) Refrigerate the turkey juices and skim off the hardened fat before making gravy and use a gravy cup that pours from the bottom to minimize fat.
3) Use ingredients like whole wheat bread, vegetables, fruits (cranberries, raisins, dates or…Read More

My martial arts teacher will often say "The bigger your network, the more capable you are" The translation from Chinese losses a little but it is still comparable and relevant. in martial arts, it means that you will increase your knowledge and acquire more skills with hard work. It means a little different to business owners but the principle is the same. The bigger your network, the more capable you will be at growing your business.
This doesn't mean that you have to attend every…Read More
