It’s been on my radar to cut clichés from my lingo. So here goes nothing.

Clichés are the elephant in the room. I know, right? It’s a win-win-win to get rid of them.

ICYMI, I mentor writers on how to win hearts and minds by thinking outside the box, so for me hitting reset should be a no brainer.

I’ve got a lot on my plate but this is mission critical. I made the call to start with the low hanging fruit – go for the biggest bang for the buck – and drill down from there.

Did I miss one? Ping me, reach out when you have the bandwidth, let’s touch base and take it offline.
