A Thing of Great Worth

January 12, 2018

The Big Why

October 26, 2017

I work for an organization, Keller Williams Realty, that is always asking “why” do we do what we do? This business is exciting and dynamic and very challenging, especially on a psychological level.

This blog post is dedicated to my beautiful sister-in-law Melissa. She is a dedicated mom to my niece and nephew and has demonstrated a remarkable energy and focus on their health and development since they were born very prematurely almost 5 years ago.
