It’s been 33 years since Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers the cartoon premiered. The cartoon series brought joy to millions of children worldwide as it aired. Sadly, the cartoon was canceled 30 years ago.

They’re joined by characters such as Ellie (KiKi Layne), Sweet Pete (Will Arnett), Monterey Jack (Eric Bana), Zipper (Dennis Haysbert), Ugly Sonic (Tim Robinson), Captain Putty (J.K.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Marry Me

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now availableĀ on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

Marry Me is a newer rom-com starring Jennifer Lopez as music superstar Kat Valdez. She’s on a roll. It looks like she will go even further with the extravagant wedding to fellow singer Bastian (Maluma).

From there, the comedy ensues. It’s also a touching story of second (or third and fourth) chances. It’s also full of leadership lessons.
