Labor Day Fun Facts!

Most of us think of Labor Day weekend as summer coming to an end: kids are heading back to school and it's usually the last vacation families will take for a while. As sad as it is, it's the truth! Summer is coming to an end, and it's back to routines and business for so many of us.

Employee Retirement Series. Part 3: Giving the Perfect Presentation

I remember my Dad's retirement party well: it was in the early aughts and I was wearing this smashing purple-on-purple polka-dot dress (hmmm…wish I still had that dress…) and everyone was there: his former secretary from, like, 1974, past and present colleagues, friends, family, and, I could swear even one of his grad-school professors. I can picture the scene like it was yesterday, even though you'd think it would be a memory long-discarded—just like that dress.
