Professional grief. Let’s talk about it, so we can get past it and onto living our most successful lives.

Many people who I encounter often congratulate me on the growth of the VJMedia brand since they first met me. I’ve come a long way professionally and I’m proud of that.

I’ve heard a lot of people say that when you visit one Caribbean island you’ve seen them all. Well I’ll be the first to tell you that that theory is way off and couldn’t be further from the truth! After exploring the Caribbean for years, I still find each location to be fascinating, unspoiled and largely undiscovered (Like my recent visit to Kingston, Jamaica). As a girl...
