As time-consuming owning your own business can be, the rewards are worth it. Since I work a five-day week, Iā??m usually off and enjoying a two-day weekend. I love Palm Desert and always have my tennis and golf gear with me when I leave. When Iā??m not lounging by poolside, outdoor barbecues and surrounding palm trees and lake sides create the ambient afternoons as is dressing up on a Saturday night dancing in exclusive romantic hideaways. I enjoy entertaining at home and especially cooking. Veal Cordon Blue, Chicken Creko and Steak Diane are my specialties, but my homemade tacos are delicious with an icy margarita. I've traveled extensively in Europe.
