The Upside Of Getting It Wrong

Information is not enough.
A friend of a friend posted a litany of facebook do’s + don’ts followed by a flurry of unfriendly crack.

Over on Twitter a wit and a rogue suggests we make friends with our crazy voice because we’ll be sitting with that b*tch for a long time…the retweets flow.


It’s a mugs game.

And no matter what you make or do there’ll be lovers and there’ll be haters.

I’ve lost track of the times that I’ve hit send only to discover wonky comma’s and spelling mishaps.

Failed launches?

Ready to go ga-ga for goals?

Write to me and say hello.

We’ll chat. Set it up. Boom.

Sometimes a single thank you just isn’t enough. I’m headed to GA State in the Fall!!! Your guidance and coaching helped me face my fears and realize the only thing holding me back was me. You so rock. I’m now following my dreams. ~ Tanja
