It's taken longer than I expected, but I have finally updated my website with all of my services and a place to sign-up for weekly communication tips.

I'd like to publicly thank Justine Shu, who came up with the design and Erin Richards who has helped (and continues to help) me stay on track and create a space where I can share my insights and experience on interpersonal communications in the workplace.

If you've got a few minutes to check it out, sign-up and/or email me some feedback, I'd really appreciate it.

I have three questions for you: Do you get cold sweats before you hit the send key for a company-wide email? Do you struggle to find the right words to express your ideas in business reports? Do you make it to the first round of job competitions, but fail to pass the written components?

Mel had been my mother's companion and best friend for nine years, since my father passed away. My mother called before going to the camp-site to make sure dogs were welcome. There were no signs to indicated that there was a vicious dog on the premises. The only comment the owner had for devastated and heartbroken mother was, "You shouldn't have brought your dog here". With no sympathy or empathy for my mother, who was in shock, she did not even offer a refund for one night of camping or the $2 dog-fee. If this happened to you, what would do?
