Not sure it is the best—but a one of my regular favorites is a local dish called “Angry Muscles” in white wine butter sauce with chopped fresh jalapeno’s and thick cut bacon. Basically anything with Spice and Bacon works for my pallet. Pope Francis, Amy Schumer, Hilary Clinton

Get Energized. Get Proactive!

By Linda Yates

The Microsoft fiscal year-end is the perfect time to check, plan, and prepare for the coming year. Similar to how January brings goal setting and resolutions, a new beginning – in this case, a new Microsoft fiscal year – is always a great way to jump-start your motivation in every aspect of your life and business.

You don’t have to wait for the end of the calendar year to plan. If you write down your goals, the propensity of them getting conquered goes up more than 50 percent. Take 30 minutes to think and meditate. What do you want to achieve and do in every aspect of your life? Write it down. When I do this, I am amazed at the goals I am able to achieve.

Being proactive energizes, and being reactive sucks energy away!
