Placeholder Are there a right way and a wrong way to wear a name badge?  Most people wear their badges on their left (near their heart).

How to remain calm in a challenging situation

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 by Josette Lumbruno

Placeholder “Practice living in the present moment.” This is a simple solution, yet so difficult to execute on a daily basis.
