So this blogging thing isn’t easy. I made the commitment to myself that this year I would blog every weekday. It is an auspicious thing for me. Last year, until December, I had blogged four times. I blogged several times in December as I began to ramp up to 2015, but I still only blogged […]
So we starting wrap up our second week in our new building at The Richards Group. Our owner and founder, Stan Richards, built this building himself and believe me, they agonized over every details from bathroom signs to the tinting on the windows. It’s a pretty rad setup.
