  1. I LOVED the Harvard Business Review article. Actually, dad had given me a copy of that article since I am a partner at work and I am trying to become a NAMED partner, but that would involve the manageing partner adding my name to the Firm Stationary. I think I do want this b/c that way, I will truley make an indelible mark on the firm, as it has for me. YAY!!!
