House it going?

Hey guys, House it going? 😉 Oh, don’t roll your eyes at me and my puns – mind your Manors. I have a feeling this post is going to be a real Home run. Okay, okay – I’m done. But you know you a-door me. (SORRY LAST ONE) But what I’m trying to tell you [...]


Only Strong

My mentor at work gave me a really excellent book that I think everyone should consider reading. Stick with me here: StrengthsFinder 2.0 From Gallup. I know, I know.
