They are the people who are fervent believers in the good of people, no matter how many times they’ve been robbed or disgraced. They are also the ones who are certain in their hope that people can change for the better. They are an amazing race of humans. I happen to be married to one, my two best friends are these type of people, and my boss, Teri. […]

3 Things You Need to Know About Grit

There are 3 things you need to know about grit. It’s not the gunk that’s stuck on your sinks and shower tubs. It’s not that feeling you get when you’re exfoliating your face either. And, it’s definitely not the texture you feel in your mouth when you eat one of those baked goods that are not fluffy and moist.
