NOTE: I am happily married and the mother of five adult sons: experience during my involvement with two corporations originated by my husband has provided me with insight into the realities of the business world, and each child has given me a great appreciation of the complexities of human beings. My family has taught me much and provided me with a "real life laboratory" in which to apply new and practical ideas in human relations.
