Cool Down

July 22, 2019

I have an overhead fan in my bedroom, and on hot nights, I try to position me and my dog at the best angle to feel the breeze. But apparently, fans don’t work that well to cool off dogs, which is good to know. What are your best “beat the heat” strategies?

Purchase Power

I’m waiting for a box to arrive with my new Adidas “track pants.” And it makes me smile just thinking about it. Sometimes, shopping works.

UPDATE: the Adidas track pants arrived and I hate them.

The Commute

I grew up in NYC with a father who took the subway to Manhattan every morning. One of the benefits of being a Career Coach is that I get to work from home and avoid L.A. traffic. How do you make your way to the job?
