The Greek Island Fantasy

(This is a rewrite of a post from June 2010.) I was hanging with another self-employed coach/writer friend recently and we were both having a hard day. One of those days in which you wonder, “What is it I do? And why?” You may bemoan not becoming a nuclear physicist because at least they know […]
