  • Wow! Congratulations on the work you and your team are doing!!!! You mentioned you had worked for Target. It really is a small world…in my second book, “Becoming the Best”, which comes out on March 9th, I use Target as an example of a company that truly exemplifies being a “Best Citizen”. Harry
