Events & Interviews...

-- Conscious Living Events --

Today, April 22 is both: Earth Day & Administrative Professional’s Day.

Administrative Professional’s Day was first put in place back in 1952 when it was used to encourage people to consider secretarial careers. Today it is celebrated world-wide to honor administrative professionals for their often unrecognized contribution to the organization's success.

For Earth Day and in fact for Earth Month (April), there are likely a lot of eco-events happening in your community today and throughout this upcoming weekend. Locally we have some interesting alternative energy and energy efficiency workshops going on, and New York City is hosting one of the largest student run events in the world...
