To Play or Not to Play?

To Play or Not to Play?

Sometime in late June, the United States Supreme Court is expected to announce a landmark decision on the constitutionality of all or part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.

Connections Counseling: A chief executive heals herself

Shelly Dutch has come a long way in life, but she’d be the first to tell you she didn’t do it alone.
