Jeronimo!  And thank you! I am sending out a big, heartfelt thank you, to all of those who helped with our Daily Dirt Campaign. It was a success! We generated enough money to keep on going.

Dear Readers, I am excited, and nervous today. Today is the day. The day that we are launching our Daily Dirt campaign which will help to fund our newest endeavor, the Daily Dirt.   “Can you dig it?” The Daily Dirt “seed” was planted 7 years ago, in a humble office on the Main Street of Greenwich.  As an off-the-cuff comment, it came from Brittany about the need for…


Being a good board member

September 26, 2021

We work with many boards of directors every day in our profession.   I have seen great successes on boards, as well as great shortcomings.  Some of this I have observed, some of this I have been a part of, as a board member myself through the years. I ponder, what goes into making a great board of directors?  Why are some boards thriving while others struggle so? Clearly…

Inbox trainwreck

January 24, 2021

HELP! I am an inbox trainwreck! Cyclone, hurricane, disaster area! Oh, it’s bad. It’s really bad. 31,000 emails and counting.  My poor co-workers break out in hives whenever they get a peek into the inbox. Our computer guy gasped when he sat down at my desk and tried to work within it one day.  Open tabs, open browser windows, open emails, it’s a mess! The anxiety inside of…
