Whether you’re in the market for a writer, video producer, web designer, photographer or other creative professional, my Linkedin article shares five tips to save you money–and keep your blood pressure under control.

It’s planning time again. As I look ahead to the New Year I also want to take a step back to express my gratitude for the wisdom, support and referrals I’ve received this year. I’ve written about minimalist architecture, kitchen design, mops, wine estates, cool new apps, baby strollers, lab testing, investments, the glaciers of Chile, Martin Luther King’s struggles and George Washington’s dentures. Heartfelt thanks to my clients, colleagues and sources for making the collaboration process the very best part of my job.

I love conducting business with companies that do great work and do good works. That’s what I strive for, too. Here’s a carload of donated gifts, party decorations and a fabulous homemade Spider-Man cake (not baked by me) I delivered on my lunch break to a little boy who is celebrating his special day in a homeless shelter. Birthday Wishes of Long Island is the wonderful organization that makes this possible.
