I’m quick on the mute button and I can tell you a foolproof way to do a professional conference call from Disneyland.

Ready to Get Lucky?

From time to time, someone will say, “You’re so lucky,” referring to my work lifestyle.  I’m never quite sure whether to be happy or offended.  Should I reply, “Thanks!” or “It has nothing to do with luck.”  Or they say, “Well, if I had your job…” or “It must be...
