Kellie’s Favorite Insights from Gwen

After reading Gwen’s post from Thursday, I’m feeling very warm and fuzzy inside. One of the hard parts about our business ventures ending in an official way is that Gwen and I will not have scheduled time to talk every week, and that will be a loss to me. She really is the yin to […]
