“Packing up, Resigned, Terminated, Let go”. Different words, but the same meaning.  The recent and huge ‘shifts’ of Div.

“Accountability breeds response-ability.” – Stephen R. Covey Yesterday was Veterans Day.  I’m very thankful for those who have and presently serve in the Armed Forces.  I think of the word accountability a lot in work, owning a business and running a lacrosse team.  I’m reminded of General Eisenhower, the night before the D-Day invasion landings […]

“If you want to call the SHOTS, you have to take all the RISKS!” That’s a quote I flat out believe in.  Lacrosse goalies have to be alert and call the shots, or else!  Being a goalie, a co-founder, president and captain of my post-collegiate club lacrosse team isn’t an easy job.  There’s coordinating meetings, […]
