 You can’t always get what you want.
But if you try sometimes, well, you just might find, you get what you need.

-  The Rolling Stones

 Bette Davis said it best when she played Margo Channing in the 1950 film
All About Eve:  
“Fasten your seatbelts.  It’s going to be a bumpy night.”

Expectations + Disappointments = Change

Change isn’t always easy.  Most people get into business and personal relationships with high hopes.  That was certainly the case for me when I sold the training division of my 32-year old business to a former student.  While the love of the company was mutual, our styles and experiences couldn’t be more different.  My hopes and expectations were met with a series of disappointments.  Fortunately, the 5-year buy out that began on January 1, 2019 ended at the end of December 2023.  (Yeah me!)
