Why blog?

Who loves this book?


Have you ever learned something new or read a great book  that you were dying to share with others?  Or maybe you want feedback from someone else on the book or a new idea?  A blog can be so much fun… can comment on the book, ask a question about the book or the author, and anyone reading your blog can respond. Like being in a book club without leaving home!

Fourth of July

Happy 4th!

The 4th of July marks the beginning of summer for me. From now until September the hours of fun stretch out ahead with endless plans to make and friends to visit. Summer in Tahoe means that my friends and I spend long weekend days at the beach or evening dinners lake side after work. Squeezing out every bit of fun we can from the longer, warmer days. Having fun with whatever I do is just, more fun! Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos and author of “Delivering Happiness” spoke at a SHRM conference a few years ago and inspired me to pursue the concept of making work fun. Why not deliver happiness at work? Reading the book might inspire you to new ideas. Don’t wait until you graduate, find that great job or make tons of money, start being happy now!
