On the Radio

I just finished my radio interview on www.drpatshow.com! 1150 AM in Seattle.

Dr. Pat is based in Seattle and if you check out the website, you’ll see that she usually talks to major folks like Deepak Chopra and my boss, Louise Hay, among many others – I was blessed to be asked!

We had a lot of fun and I appreciate Dr. Pat telling people about my blog and site. Tune in anytime and my interview should be up on their site probably next week in the archives.

First I apologize to Shelley for being late on this.  Reason being I had intentions to write on boundaries but in true form of what a “blog’ is I thought it be best to be “of the moment’ and write what is actually on my mind and going on in my life right now which is:

I’m looking for a job.   Continue reading “Meet Mystery Blogger JDUBZ!”

Miss Know-It-All

MKIADear Miss Know-It-All,

My boss has been going though many highs and lows the past year (more so than normally!). I have accepted the volatile nature of the beast, but the past twelve months have been exceptionally more erratic. I believe that chemical substances are involved and are the primary reason for the mood swings. The mood swings are affecting our relationship as well as my ability to accomplish any level of work. What is my best course of direction—run or stay?

Extra TV!

Good afternoon everyone. Secretary’s Week was April 21-25 – and I was the guest speaker at the ACPA (www.acpa-la.com) April 23rd meeting in Los Angeles. Also appearing was my alter ego- Miss Know It All – to answer questions on, well, anything!

EXTRA TV was suppose to show up but THEY DIDN’T really film much and didn’t film me speaking at all. Oh well. I still had fun!

Amazon.com Rank

Just for fun I recently checked to see where my book was on Amazon.com. It’s not that high in the ratings – #90 last time I looked. Bue what was even more fun was to see what books were beating me out. I could not make this list of titles up! Ahead of me are: Taxi Driving and Capitalism in America and Winning Ways: A Funeral Director’s Guide to Human Relations. Pretty wild, yes? It just goes to show that anyone can write about anything and get it published – even me!
