I’m currently in Las Vegas for a tradeshow.  It’s not a tradeshow of any interest to me but I have to be here.  When I’m not coaching, I manage tradeshow production.  I’ve done this work for so many years I’ve lost count.  I can do the job with my eyes closed.  It pays the bills.  However, I don’t love it.  I … Read More
