help clean Thanksgiving plates.
Good evening from Woodstock, Maine where the snow banks along my driveway and cold air remove all doubt that December is just a few hours away. In November I had the privilege of speaking at events in Ontario, Illinois, Boston, and North Carolina. Thank you to everyone who came out to one those events. Meeting many of you who read my blog is one of my favorite parts of speaking at conferences. I hope that I get to meet even more of you in December and in 2015.
