A Well Fit Dishwasher

“What is something you do well?” That was the Your Turn Challenge Question for Day 4 – which should have been Thursday. My personal commitment was to write my thoughts on that question last week but a four-hour car ride and a hacked email account sidelined my plans. It was all for good. Over the course of the 200+ mile interstate drive I had mentally crafted an over-the-top tale of my best skills – all of which were expertly tied to my professional public relations and communications goals.

The Your Turn Challenge Blog came about at a great time. I’ve stopped and started my personal blog a dozen times over the last two years. Two years mark the point at which I stopped working for myself and began a different career course. I can’t say I wasn’t warned. The week before I was offered the position, my boss’ boss straightforwardly told me that the new job would take all my attention. It certainly did, at least for the first year but then I became jealous of the time… Read more Your Turn Challenge
