Ask Denise: Politically-Correct Holidays

Q: “Denise, I feel like the holidays used to be so easy, but now I am so afraid of offending someone! I don’t want to send cards. I am afraid of giving out ornaments or cookies or anything! I have clients who are all different religions or from different countries. An agent in my office […]

Ask Denise: Setback? Rebound!

Denise, I am frustrated! I have been in the business for 15 years and each year my business has gotten a little better and a little better. I was on track at the beginning of the year to finish the year a smidge higher than last year, but several clients have had a change of […]
