This is a no-kill, all-breed dog rescue that serves to lower euthanasia rates in the greater Chicagoland area and provide education on the humane treatment of companion animals. We had the opportunity to “Q&A” Anna Friedman, one of the original founders of the rescue, who was also recently …

Becoming a Self-Management Ninja or just a Small Business Owner

This very week, Rover-Tim turns two months old and much like a new parent, I couldn’t be more in love or feel more joy than I do right now for this accomplishment. I have my moments where I feel guilt for not appreciating every minute in my fast-moving day and I am continuously recognizing how much there still is …
