Finding Humor in Your Life… The Lighter Side of My Life

December 31, 2019

To end 2019 and welcome in 2020, I decided to tell you some "Host Stories."  These are my stories, a chance to get to know me, and some of my experiences.  These stories are not a bare all but stories that I hope will bring a smile to your face, maybe even one you can relate too.  In our busy lives, we can never forget we work to live, not live to work.  Finding work/life balance, which we all talk about starts with you — your choice to make it happen, because, without your commitment, it will never be achieved.  I hope you enjoy this episode and we'll see you at the Cafe in the new decade.
