To Mammogram or not to Mammogram

Now that the dust has settled on the mammogram issue, I’ve had time to digest all of the news. In as much as I am from 3 generations of breast cancer survivors and carry the BRCA2 gene, I may be too biased to see any other perspective other than the pro-early detection side of the mammogram debate BUT I’m not too biased to be confused by the conflicting reporting of the last week. The new recommended standard of not having mammograms until the age of 50 (and then every two years) and the report… Continue

Marketing and the Golden Rule

The golden rule in a nutshell is to treat others how you want to be treated. Think about now many networking groups you are in. Are you in one that is "exclusive" and where you made a promise (contract) to be loyal to group members? If you have any scruples at all you might be a little uncomfortable with such a promise. You might have an excellent, reliable person you want to work with outside the group and that you've already promised your loyalty to... the bottom line is IF you aren't true to… Continue
