Do you stick around in bad times too?

They were a young couple and the wife had to struggle to keep her vows. It was a difficult period for her but her Mother’s words of…

Top Tips for Official Phone Conversations.

We need to talk.

How do you break the ice? Is it just me or does ‘We need to talk‘ have the tendency to send shivers down your spine. Yesterday was Mother’s day and I spent part of my day at Mum’s. It was nice to have some mum cooked meal, relax and go through my old stuff. I…
