Compli Cares just finished our quarterly volunteer event and I must say, it was an exhausting, but incredibly fruitful experience. We were lucky to assist Neighborhood House in their mission to bring neighbors together to reduce hunger and homelessness.

I don’t hurt for opinions. You can ask any of my coworkers, family members, past friends, perhaps even casual passersby’s on the street, anyway, you get the idea. This is why the Ritchie Incognito and Johnathan Martin situation with the Miami Dolphins is such a conundrum for me. I just can’t seem to reconcile my […]
Looking Forward To It: To anticipate something with pleasure To be pleased or excited because something is going to happen For most of us, adulthood has brought increased responsibilities and a decreased sense of fun. Nothing says fun like spending the majority of your day working, only to see the value of those hard […]
