We were both enjoying the Dallas skyline and the beautiful traffic [sarcasm] they have there. Earlier in the day, Howard had led a session and…


How to become known and respected

“Hello, I’m Brian”


Ding-dong! Someone had just rang the doorbell and I went to see who it was. When I got there I was happy to see the man and woman that I had been expecting. Much to my surprise there was a third person. He was a nicely dressed gentlemen wearing business attire, including a purple shirt…
