7 things I learned working in the financial services industry

My experience is of course mine alone. I don't speak for anyone else.

Blogmas Day 1: Christmas Marketing

I can do this. I can carve out a little time each day to write a post - long or short - about how the day's gone or is going. It will my daily catharsis. Lord knows I need it. Honestly, I'll try my best because I'll enjoy doing. Not because I know anyone will actually be reading it! If anyone is reading it though, I hope you enjoy the…
