What are your natural talents?

I'm a big proponent of focusing on your strengths. I think if you spend time working on those your weaknesses will begin to fade away. I recently came across this great book and website (thank you Jennifer R from NWEA). Strengths Finder 2.0. At the website you go through a series of questions that output an assessment that identifies your natural talents. I was so moved by this book I bought another five copies and am giving them to my friends.

My assessment validated a lot of things for me. And really showed me that I'm in the right place career and life wise. Here are my strenths:
- Arranger
- Individualization
- Includer
- Maximizer
- Empathy

I urge you to check it out.

Chirp, Chirp...Mmmm Lemon Cream

Wow, its been a while. I'm back at the full-time PMing and wow is my brain feeling sore. Funny how a few months of not working full time will cause part of the ole' brain muscle to get rigamortis. Oh well. I also started a bootcamp this week. So brain and body are going to get back into shape all at once.

For a little Easter spirit I baked some lemon cream cupcakes and added peeps. Don't you love peeps? Well the look of them not actually the taste or texture.

They turned out cute, I thought I'd share.
