I am delighted that Green Pastures, under the auspices of Grace Yung, Ph.D., in Hong Kong, has agreed to translate/ publish both books into both traditional Chinese characters and simplified Chinese for readers in Mainland China, Singapore and Malaysia.

It was a treat to be included in the January, 2021 issue of Professional Speaker, the National Speaker's Association magazine, "Making the Pivor to Plan B: Is Your Enterprise Able to Pivot When Circumstances Force You Out of Your Comfort Zone?"

I am excited to share that I was named Member of the Year for the National Speakers Association/ Northern California, just months after I got my 15th year anniversary pin from the National Speakers Association! 

Thanks  to everyone who helped along the way.
