I’ve missed every one of you, my millions thousands hundreds dozens handful of loyal readers. It’s been quite a while since I published anything remotely resembling a blog–April 17, to be exact. There were several reasons I decided to take a break. COVID-19 monopolized every waking moment of every day; hastily written laws, regulations, and agency guidance continued to change at a blinding pace; and Becky and I were each working 15-hour days, seven days a week.
Well, as of today, I’m back! After a few “frank” [please tell me you didn’t just do that] conversations with people I trust, I realized two things: 1) I have the ability to present otherwise indecipherable, boring, but vitally important information in an understandable and often funny way; and 2) writing allows me to keep our clients informed, is a great marketing tool, and is a much-needed outlet for my everyday stress. [Hey, your favorite alter ego here, I’m the funny one, not you!] I also realized that the “Fridays” part of Fridays with Frank was adding to my stress. So, rather than recommitting to the pressure of a weekly blog, I’ve decided to launch Frankly Speaking, which will be published regularly but not on a set schedule.
