Welcome to My Site

I help small businesses grow. I do this by creating training materials and sharing resources that give them a LIFT. I am a writer, a watcher, a waiter, and a wonderer.

Resources I find, I share on Twitter @mikesansone. Longer thoughts, I spill out on Armchair Articulations.

In between the short and long of it, I've created this space to capture and share thoughts, images, videos, or other items of interest that don't fit neatly elsewhere (either in size or scope).

Girl: No. The first time I try something new, after that I know I’m going to need lots of practice to get better,

Smart thinking.
