My boss told me to have a good day,
so I went home!

This will seem like a stretch to start, but trust me, it'll make sense in another paragraph or two. It began with a catalog loaded with t-shirts and some great one-liners.

It's Friday of a holiday weekend, and it's also the end of Mental Health Awareness Month. So if you're feeling stuck in a dead-end career, job or just frustrated because too often things don't work out the way you anticipated, here are some ideas...
No one blog post could cover it all. I've just scratched the surface, but here's my point: Nothing is ever cast in concrete in this industry. And when you feel like you're off a beat and just can't figure out why, stop, step back and take the time to find what's missing. We're all too close to our own businesses, and sometimes it just takes a new perspective.
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success.
If you love what you're doing, you will be successful.
Wishing everybody a terrific holiday weekend!
