In-The-Moment Mentors
As I was reading this week’s issue of In Business Las Vegas and turning the pages of the special section Women to Watch, it occurred to me that many of these women have unknowingly been my mentors.

Caregiver Business Summit
If you are a company with employees in Nevada, some are likely to be among the 250,000 plus caregivers in the state.  Having personally been a caregiver to both children and senior parents while employed, I understand the demands placed on the “sandwich generation” caregivers.
