Hi lady fishies, what do you guys do when you have a book as a goal? Read it on company time? But I feel I don't have that time. Also, have any sales books with woman authors to recommend. Can't stomach any more men than required right now.
Thinking I could smash it in a sales gig after selling thousands of copies of my own books. I also have a large global audience. I’m looking to make a lot of money in a short period of time. I am hungry. I am a go getter. I have done everything. Who is ready to put me to work remotely or in Denver? Let’s talk!

Thank you

Client onboarded a new manager almost a year ago but the resource still pulls the “I’m new card.” I am SO tired of their growing attitude to let things crumble instead of escalate, have tough conversations, and pretending they don’t know what they are doing when we’ve been having the same conversations 20 different ways and behind closed doors they understand and discuss the issues. Personal life is a mess and I am losing patience bringing solutions and documenting all of these issues.
