“I realize that humor isn’t for everyone. It’s only for people who want to have fun, enjoy life, and feel alive.”

Anne Wilson Shaef

In the world of most professionals, remaining serious is often seen as essential to establishing credibility and thus gaining others’ trust and respect. In fact, many equate businesslike demeanor with competence and expertise. However, incorporating appropriate humor in one’s work environment can definitely make for a much more pleasant experience, both for the professional, her colleagues, and her clients. Laughter reduces stress, elevates mood, and improves one’s performance, and I am honored to collaborate with a team that is not afraid to get from behind their professional masks and don some pretty awesome pink glasses.
