President Biden outscored, outclassed and outplayed the MAGA Republicans during his State of the Union, and I’m here for it. Gary Carter Green, Finale Norton and I break it down for You Can’t Beat Blue in this 3-minute clip. Take a look and let me know what you think. Do you agree with us?
Six years ago I had a breakthrough in learning how to stop getting stuck in overwhelm by doing the next best thing.
I was working on HUGE client project which involved interviewing seventy plus people over the course of a month and a half, evaluating the data and drafting a report which was due to the client the beginning of October. Not a problem. I’m a planner and I love laying out a project step by step. I don’t even mind deadlines. I’m one of those weirdos who always had her undergrad term papers done a week early.

While I didn’t realize it at the time, I began my career as a connector when I started working as manuscript coordinator for Endocrinology and later as the managing editor for international peer-review medical journal, Endocrine. In order for scientific discovery to move forward, scientists perform experiments, write up the results which they submit to a peer-review journal so that other people in the same field of study can review their work.
