On Sept 16, 2009 I attended an event sponsored by the Puget Sound Business Journal, where Nancy was one of the speakers. Between those two encounters, I updated one of my many bio’s, the example below is very short and I use it for ½ page promo cards and short bio descriptions.
The first two words of my bio are those that Nancy Juetten recommended when I spoke to her at the Puget Sound Business Journal event. I made minor changes, but the rest of the changes, that bring the bio to light were made by Chistine Mifsud, someone new working for me that has surely impressed me (and Nancy J)
