Let's Play "Mother, May I"
Suzanne Bristol As a child my friends and I would play the game Mother May I, also known sometimes as Father or Captain May I (watch video). There is nothing more inspiring then when I meet someone from our industry that loves to help others reach the captain's seat.

May you go to work each day helping someone bring that childhood feeling back again.
