Coffee is Always the Answer (and pizza and beer)

So, today was just one of those days where I wish I could have stayed at home, hiding under the covers until the moon came out… Life has been hectic from all angles (story of my life, right?), I’ve got busy businesses keeping me on my toes, I’ve got new businesses launching that have to…

How To Take A Good Selfie – Not!
