This has been a crazy year so far. Since January, I’ve been traveling virtually nonstop to conferences and client meetings, as well as speaking engagements on my book, Rewired. I feel like I have been home about three weeks all year! Madness.

I love to travel, I love to connect with people, I love adventure, and I love to work. I don't love living out of boxes, but I love what it represents—new beginnings and new opportunities.
Right now, I’m enjoying being back in Cambridge, if only for a few days. I am enjoying the solitude of my sun-filled home and the cat on my lap. And I realize that I really need this.
