Tuesday 10 ~ Linda Lane Soper

TuesdayThis weeks my Tuesday 10 respondent is Linda Lane Soper.

Linda and I met 8 years ago when we were working for the same company.  We worked well together, even if the work environment we were under didn’t work well for either of us.

Since leaving her position, Linda has gone on to do amazing work with her own firm, Linda Lane PR and Marketing.

I am grateful to Linda for her participation and hope you will enjoy getting to know her in this week’s Tuesday 10!
