Live X-Mas Tree Giveaway

Every X-Mas my family goes to someone’s home to enjoy their X-Mas party. We love the scent of the pine trees, the decorations and we really love the candy canes. What I don’t love is seeing X-Mas trees all over the streets waiting for trash pickup at the New Year.

The stack of cards is a mile high, and the pictures… oh y’all took so many pictures. What I noticed about BlogHer is that the lobby and …

Giveaway: Tupperware Gives to You Too

Earlier this week, at the Tupperware party I had a few remarkable conversations. Rick Goings (the CEO of Tupperware) was telling me about the growth of the company, and (unlike any other man in his position) he wasn’t talking to me about the product. Rick was talking to me about the people. He said that the way to success is to, “find a great parade and walk in front of it.”I suspect that Rick does a lot more than lead a great parade.
