Thoughts From The Coffee Table:  A few years ago I wanted to begin meditating, but I really had no idea where to begin.  And most importantly, I wasn’t certain I could even do it.  After all, I’m not known for being a quiet person. Watching GMA one weekend, Dan Harris, the host, shared a very […]

Thoughts from the Coffee Table: This morning I am headed to NYC for a quick trip, looking for more examples of excellent customer experiences. I didn’t intend to have one before the sun came up.
