MASH Into a Slim Jim

If you’re in a service-driven business you understand the priority placed on the work for your clients. “The shoemaker’s children have no shoes” was the cliche I often used to justify why we weren’t quite dedicating enough attention to our own needs. What you start to learn is that while you can stay heads down […]

(What one might do with a herd of cats is beyond me.) Regardless, I suspect there might be a flute involved. Project […]
