If you are not hitting quota, have you taken the time to evaluate your own actions, attitudes and beliefs?

Ever been in a tight spot at work? Over your head? Out of your league? I sure have. Terrible thoughts start to take over: • I’ve lost all credibility. • My career is toast. • I’m going to hear about this. • This is my last shot. If we could yell, “HELP!” we would.

by Julie Walraven - Jul, 2010
Yesterday, I picked raspberries at my father-in-law Bob’s house. The raspberries are early this year. In other years, the raspberries were at their peak during the week of the fair in early August.
