From Randy Pennington: This is a difficult question for me. I think I do pretty well at staying current in order to stay relevant in my professional life. I challenge myself to examine different viewpoints. I haven’t missed a daily workout more than 50 times in the past 15 years. [...]

By | 2016-10-29T15:29:20+00:00 December 30th, 2014|0 Comments
