Today, I Eat My Words

Hi everyone, and welcome to this week’s Zebra Report. Today, I get to “EAT MY WORDS”. Years ago, when I started the Zebra Report, I had a client of mine ask me if I was nervous about blogging because once I put my thoughts into words I can’t take back those words. If I say […]
