“Don’t give up!”

“Don’t give up!”   I love a good bargain! I bought a palm tree at Lowes that was in the clearance section for $10.00. The regular price marked $198.00. I was feeling quite proud, let me tell you. I was proud of the fact that I save $188.00, proud of the fact that I was saving a tree and proud of the fact that it was a mystery shopping job so I would have my money returned to me.   While I am at the register paying and listening...

Say Goodbye to IMSC Pam

Recently I was having a conversation with Tony and he said, “It is so nice that you are not looking at your computer or phone.” I looked at him oddly as I really did not understand what he meant.

He said I do it with my daughter as well. I could not deny this in any way...

Entrepreneurship is a collective effort
