      A Pre-Launch Checklist For Your Small Business
      10 May 2010

      I’m a checklist person. For some reason, the thought of a blank notebook page is like a fresh start on life – a new opportunity to get it all down, and get it all done. I get to my desk in the morning, create a list, feel organized and look forward to checking each item off. Read more…
