Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son. I asked her politely if she could keep her mask on and she proceeded to spend the rest of the flight fake sneezing and laughing giving me the side eye to see my reaction. What an inspirational mother.

Recently completed recording a series of seven one-hour webinars, approved for credit by CFRE for both certification and continuing ed. Did some advertising on LinkedIn, no takers yet. I have some name recognition in the nonprofit development world, where quite a number of people do need these credits. Not sure what to try next. I also have a 25k word text that could accompany these webinars and serve as a desk reference, not quite ready for publication. Have not figured out distro.
