Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That unknown blogger in Maryland had shared the rumor from Daily Mail about Melania Trump's past. Bloggers have to be cautious about what rumors they repeat on their own postings. A letter from now-superlawyer Charles Harder mandated it be taken down. That was done immediately.

My computer consultant used to live on Easy Street in Temple Hills, Maryland. Now, I'm going to open the street map for Lanham, Maryland, where this brilliant article is being created.

Public Speaking: Bounce Around

Great Public Speaking

It was a three hour afternoon session on Martin Luther King day in Baltimore, Maryland. I recently had one of the toughest speeches of my career. It was difficult for many reasons, but one of the most trying was that the audience consisted of all the employees of one company.
