Productivity
Confession time… Back when I had my marketing agency, I rarely took a vacation. (Don’t play any violins for me… I’ve made up for it since… visiting Paris, London, Moscow, Bahamas, Cayman Islands and Disney four times in the last year alone.)

“Mom, where are you flying to?” When I am in the midst of my speaking travel season, I usually follow that question not with an answer, but with a scramble to check the notes my executive assistant, Tracey (yes, she is amazing and no, you can’t have her), placed in my schedule letting me know...
