Where Does The Time Go?

Posted by on May 3, 2018 in

Where does the time go? I have been reflecting a lot on my time here in our family business….. 42 years of my life.  My brother Kevin and I are third generation owners of Ross Insurance.  Since 1925 this business has been a part of the Holyoke community, its fabric woven throughout this great city.  My Dad purchased the agency from his Dad, and we purchased the agency from my Dad in 1990. Working in a family business is a treat not many get to experience. Some folks say...

Bon Jovi, Boston, and My Boyfriend.

I recently had the opportunity to go into my very favorite city, Boston.  For my birthday in January I was given tickets to see Bon Jovi and lets just say April could NOT get here fast enough.  I had two tickets.  Hmmm…..who should I take?  The choice was pretty easy.  I decided to go with my boyfriend.  Now before people start getting hot flashes, relax.  I call my husband Jeremy my boyfriend when we go away together because it is so nice to be away from home and the...

Money Makeover

Cholesterol, Obesity, and Being 40

You might be asking what the 3 things in the title all have in common?  Well, that is easy.  They are all things that are currently in my life.  I turned 40 mid January of this year and with that came a great gift.  This gift came in a bottle with my name on it and inside were tiny treasures.  These treasures had special instructions.  I was to take one every day, to keep me from dying of a heart attack.  Ok, not really, but kind of!  I had my physical and blood work and...
