Love means attention, which means looking after the things we love. We call this stable management.

This is a great time of year to reflect on how lucky we are and especially on how little things can make a big difference.
Starting with Thanksgiving and through the holidays, my thanks and gratitude both focus on animals.
In addition to cats–which I adore, I also love horses. Growing up in California, I was very lucky to share my life for a short time with an amazing Arabian named Mitsy and a gorgeous Pinto named Sirocco.
But living in an apartment in Chicago is not conducive to having horses. So the next best thing for me to show my love is to give back to horses in some small way this year by sponsoring a horse. 100% of the donations to Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County directly benefit the horses!
Dr. Dave applauds (far left).
I have known Dr. Dave for nearly 20 years. During that time, I have always been impressed by his dedication to his profession, his care and concern for his patients, and his knowledge of just about anything. This is the first in a series of “Profiles in Practice” stories about people who share their amazing gifts and inspiration. Enjoy!
So you just appeared on Broadway! Tell us a little about your experience.
Well, the particular show in question is Jane Austin’s Persuasion: A New Musical Drama, which we premiered in Chicago at the Athenaeum Theater in 2011 and revised in the summer of 2013 and previewed at Chicago’s Mercury Theater before taking the show on the road to the Theatre Royale Winchester, England and the Shanklin Theater (Isle of Wight), back to Chicago at the Royal George, and then on to NYC at the DiCapo Opera Theater.
There is an end to everything, to good things as well.
Projects do indeed end and the key is to have them end well. After all, according to the Project Management Institute, “A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources.”
So how can you plan for your project to end well vs. well…just end?
It’s not that they can’t see the solution. They can’t see the problem.
When I started out in my publishing career some 30+ years ago as a textbook sales representative, I was lucky to learn the value of asking questions early on. Questions such as: “Are you looking to change textbooks?” “What topics in a new textbook are you looking for?” “When would you be making a change in textbooks?” These were questions which saved lots of time making sure that I was on the right track and in the right place at the right time.
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
Snoopy was on to something here. As a writer, he knew the value of having a friend by his side to support him. Collaboration is now more important than ever for today’s authors, editors, and publishers.
This article will focus on agile marketing and share how authors can be more collaborative in their efforts.
When I wish a little wish
I wish that I was where I am.
My favorite books are those that in addition to gorgeous covers, have even more beauty inside. These are books that readers can dip in and dip out of–sort of like a day at the beach.
Every time you open the book, there is something that inspires you, or something to learn, or something to just say “wow”–how did the author come up with that!
