Back from Taiwan! And some great links!

Dear Friend, My books and coaching will help anyone get a strong start in 2019 - both make excellent gifts! (Coaching hours usable for up to a year after purchase, and you can be located anywhere.)

While there, I also gave a presentation to a group of faculty and students on Catalyzing Student Productivity. (Some will recognize the procrastination / perfectionism framework I've been using, and teaching, for years. I never tire of it!) I loved Taiwan! The people are incredible nice, and they also love dogs, so I felt a real sense of kinship! While I was away, some great productivity links came in.

Cleveland Events: Saturday 4/23 and Sunday 4/24

Saturday, April 23, 10:00 a.m. to Noon in Cleveland, Ohio at Literary Cleveland at Lake Erie Ink, Hillary is presenting Joyful Writing Productivity.
