Make The Best of What’s Around

Here is the latest episode of Tales From the Office


Make the Best of What’s Around

Today’s  show  is a combination of 2 of my loves, music and sports.  The first “make the best of what’s around” tells us about some very courageous folks who seem to know how to get by and get ahead in spite of major obstacles.  The second tale “the daily racing form” is sage advice if you’re looking to get to winner’s circle in the most important race you’ll ever run.



Taking a Break

When couples who are dating say to one another “we should take a break”, it’s usually the beginning of the end for the relationship. On Tales from the Office taking a break has other connotations. It means we’ve hit the pause button on regular shows for the month of August.  Please enjoy all of the past shows which you can find on Spreaker and Itunes.

Upcoming shows for the fall will include:

  • Couples relationships
  • Communication
  • The 2nd Inning
  • Regret and Regret proofing
  • Being Right Doesn’t Matter

Please contact me with suggestions for shows as well as comments or questions.

See you in September for our next episode of Tales From the Office!
