Find Your Center

Robert Peary is widely credited as being the first explorer to reach the North Pole (no record exists of Santa disputing that claim, although I’m told that Peary is on the naughty list).  During his mission to the pole, the story is told that …

FI Fridays: Say Thank You

Every Friday this fall is a shout-out to our First Impressions Team.  If you’re not on the team, you don’t have to read it.  But face it: you’re so loaded up on tryptophan you can’t even click the mouse, can you?  So read it, …

This one goes out to my small group peeps. As a guy who is 600 miles away from our closest family, I’m grateful for you.  The Franks crew didn’t travel for Thanksgiving, but just the same, we’ll be experiencing “home” today: we’ll gather with …

Don’t Point…Take!

It’s not polite to point. That’s what your mama always told you, and she was right. Pointing is for duck-hunting dogs, not for people who are trying to get a guest where they’re going. When you point, you’re communicating your disinterest. “I care just …
