Multi-Generational Resume Building

For the most part, my freelance career has consisted of long-term relationships with health professionals, fitness gurus, marketing pros, colleges, and others. These consistent, mutually beneficial relationships span months and even years. However, every job I take on doesn’t result … Read more »


Big Picture (Small Fee) Editing

Through the years, I’ve worked with a number of writers get their books ready for agents or the self-publishing press. It’s a real pleasure to help them tighten up their prose, correct common grammatical or usage mistakes, and work out … Read more »


Getting Paid to Take Criticism

Every once in a while, a client has changes to what I’ve written. The conversation usually begins with the client saying, “Please don’t get offended, but I really wanted…” To this, my typical reply is, “No problem. I get paid … Read more »


Do Things You Don’t Like

I give blood. And I never like it. In fact, you could say I practically dread walking into my local Blood Assurance office. (Okay, dread may be too strong a word.) The last time I gave, I passed out immediately after. … Read more »


We Don’t Need No Stinking Seams

By now, you should know that I love what Bath Fitter did for our girls’ bathroom. Because not only has Bath Fitter taken a raggedy old tub and turned it into a glistening, shiny shower tub, but they did it without any seams.

Okay, there are seams. But they’re virtually invisible. And where there are visible seams, the caulk is so consistent and clean that there’s no way water is going to get behind the tub liner or walls.

And if water does somehow sneak back there, what’s it to me? With Bath Fitter’s lifetime warranty, I don’t have to find someone else to replace the tub and repair the water damage. Bath Fitter will do it for me. But with these seams, it ain’t happening! (Pardon my Southern. It comes out when I’m excited.)

What’s the secret to perfect seams? I’m no pro, but I suspect it has to do with the accurate measuring our local Cleveland, Tennessee, representative did on the first visit. He carefully mapped out the exact dimension of the tub and surrounding walls to make sure everything fit nice and snug. After all, you only get one chance to get a good fit, and if you start with a single wrong measurement, everything will be off. If you don’t believe me, come look at the playhouse I made for my kids.

Anyway, that didn’t happen with Bath Fitter. As a result, I’ve got the best remodeled bathtub I’ve ever seen. Way better than that porcelain paint stuff or the hollow plastic mold you can get from the hardware store. And making the Bath Fitter experience even better is that there is none of that difficult clean up required with tile on the wall.

Speaking of cleaning…I plan to talk on this at length with the next blog. So stay tuned!
