2015 is almost done – are you wondering: Where oh where did the year go? Did you make resolutions in January 2015 to lose weight, exercise, be positive and go with the flow?  Did you want to buy a new truck, hire an employee or finally […]

It’s the Most Wonderful Time

Dec 21st, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I’ve been listening to Christmas songs on the radio since November. I guess it’s not any different than retail stores setting Christmas decorations out in August — pushing the season earlier and earlier in the year. December in Wisconsin usually brings lots of white stuff, […]

United We Stand

Not Another Meeting!
