Did you know 40-45% of adults make one or more resolutions each year? Among the top resolutions is losing weight, quitting smoking and exercising more. Research shows that after the first month, 64% of people are maintaining their goal but only 46% continue past the mid-year mark. However, the research also shows it is still important to make resolutions. People who make them are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than those who do not make a resolution at all.  My (unsolicited) adv...

‘Tis the Season for Presence

posted on
As much as I love giving holiday gifts, I am continually reminded of the value of presence as opposed to the material objects of presents.

posted on
I must admit I have resisted. So for all my AAHAM friends and family who have teased me for not dumping my dumb phone and embracing a smart phone; it’s on my shopping list. I’m sure Apple will be happy with one more sale! I haven’t missed not being able to email pictures of food from restaurants or reading my emails from the road.

The expression, “time flies,” certainly seems appropriate this time of the year. It’s not even Thanksgiving and already the stores are playing Christmas music and holiday decorations line the shelves.

Wow, the ANI was fantastic this year
Wow, the ANI was so much fun! As you may have heard, the big news is we modernized the names of our certifications and we added a new, mid-level certification, the CRCP. A group of us had been working hard all year on this and we kept it a secret until the big reveal. I have to admit, I’m so relieved the secret is out!
