She’s Got Legs…Wine Legs

There’s only one thing I love more than being told I’m awesome; it’s an honest friend giving me a suggestion on how I could be more awesome.  After my last blog, my good friend Mark Rogers said I fell hook, line and sinker for a common misconception within the wine industry.  Mark was referring to how, while sharing a few helpful tips to make wine tasting a little more fun and enjoyable, I very briefly discussed the “legs” of wine and its ability to aid in immediately determining quality.  Out of the goodness in his heart, he decided call me […]

Look Mom, I’m on Pay Per View TV

I’ve been a lot of things in life, but this is the first time I’ve been a pay per view TV channel!  I recently taught a class for Spokane’s LaunchPadINW called Planting the Seeds of Social Media Success (Part 1).

For the mere cost of $39 you have unlimited access to the class now through April 5. Watch it in chunks, watch it a […]
