Rest.
This past weekend I decided to take myself offline.  For the past several weeks I've been feeling worn out, frustrated, and bogged down with all things social media.  It's hard to put yourself out there continually and see little in the way of results, so I...

Good Reads: Primates of Park Avenue.
image via Good Reads I have long been fascinated with New York City.  If I were told I had to pick a city to live in, it would most definitely be New York.  There is a unique kind of energy there unlike any other place I've been.  You've Got Mail is a favor...
