5 Questions For Tara:

1. Where can we find you when you're not working?

When I am not at work you will probably find me in the kitchen, cooking up a new recipe or baking a sweet treat. I also travel to Minnesota to spend time with family and friends.

2. If you weren't doing what you do today, what other job would you have?

I would either like to own a small café/bakery or a food truck.

3. Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car? Why?

I would rather drive a car because I can travel to places faster, since I'm usually in a rush and I can't slow down!

4. What would you do if you won the lottery?

If I won the lottery I would take a few years off to travel around the world, open a few restaurants. I would also make sure my family was taken care of and then give to charity.

5. What three items would you take with you on a deserted island?

I would take a smartphone so I can still call family & friends, read books online & search Pinterest. I would also need my phot albums and chocolate, because I can't live without it!

      How Barry Manilow Can Help Tame Your LinkedIn Stage Fright

      My former co-work, Rita, loved Barry Manilow.  She often wore a T-shirt that said, “Never Underestimate the Power of a Barry Manilow Song.” She loved him so much that in one week, she saw him once in Indianapolis and the following weekend she drove up to Chicago to see him. She was our receptionist – and I guarantee you she ate Ramen noodles for a few days to make those two concerts happen.
