Be Who You Want to BE in Detroit: A Resolution That Can’t be Broken!

Posted on January 28th, 2015 in Detroit, Detroit Art, Detroit Business, Detroit Education
Perhaps it’s because this is the time of year when everyone is talking about ‘resolutions’—essentially ‘rules’ they are going to ‘set for themselves, and then, all too-often, ‘break.’ It could also be because this time of year also marks the start of a new semester for me, with fresh batches of [...][...]

Posted on November 26th, 2014 in Detroit, Detroit Business, Detroit Events
I am not a shopper. Believe me. I grew up with ‘a shopper’—an elite shopper—so I know shoppers. Shoppers enjoy the sheer experience of shopping: going to the store, being in a store, going from store to store. It’s like a safari for them: an adventure from start to finish. Shoppers also derive pleasure from [...][...]

Alright. I’ll confess. I am the world’s most reluctant shopper. There is quite possibly nothing I like less than shopping. And here we are.
