Pimento cheese is the food that most reminds me of my childhood. My mother was not what I would describe as an “avid homemaker” by any stretch of anyone’s imagination.  She had two kids, a full time job (with overtime when she could get it), and while she certainly appreciated a clean house and dinner on the table before dark, that was as far as it went for her.

I’ve learned a thing or two about standing out in a crowd over the years. Standing out in the crowd is a scary prospect, there’s no doubt about that.  The only thing I can think of, personally, that would be worse, is blending into the background and never being noticed by the people you need to connect with in order to be successful. In a very crowded field of competitors, it’s often difficult to stand out, to differentiate yourself, from the rest of the pack.  But it doesn’t have to be.  I’ve got a few easy tips for you,...
