True! I like audiobooks for road trips, and I never thought to get a professional development one. Great idea!

Wow, thanks! Yeah, I've dropped 30 pounds in the last several months. My secret? Erika, hahaha. She does all the hard work by counting the calories of what she cooks and making the right portion sizes. She's found a lot of delicious recipes that are really low-cal. Mmmm.

I like that advice! I never thought of it quite that way. I know my career planning has been really haphazard - it's like I've been stumbling into my next job by happenstance - but when I took the Quest gig, I really thought, "I have no idea what I want to do next. I just want to do this as long as I can." For my next job, I'm screwed, hahaha - I'm spoiled.

You're absolutely right: you've got the technical skills nailed down, and the thing that takes it to the next level is the professional development stuff. I try to read one of those books a quarter, and it just totally rejuvenates me every time. It's so empowering, it's almost electric. It's also cheesy, but hey, it works.

Yeah, I even copy/pasted replaceable into Google to spell check it, because I didn't believe Firefox's spell checker, hahaha!

No, I haven't blogged that one - I just give it as a presentation from time to time. Keep your eyes peeled! :-)

They should both be around an hour, although if there's questions I'll take those and run a little longer.

I wanted to hold this off for April 1, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it!
