Jack Reacher on Military Drifters

I'm a huge fan of the Jack Reacher series of books by Lee Child. The movies are so-so, but the books are a superb look into the mind of a professional military man turned drifter. For those of you in my age bracket, it's like The Equalizer meets David Carradine's Kung Fu.

I recently read The Affair, and there's a section in the book where Reacher talks about military bums. I want you to read it and feel free to let me know what you think. I served in both the Marine…

Marketing is…hard. And you never signed up for it

There you were, working away building sites, and one day you realized you were pretty good. Good enough that you should be doing this for yourself instead of letting someone else enjoy all the profits.

Running a business…

Slander And Calumny Violate Property Rights.

Elizabeth had been working diligently at her job for about ten months. It was her second ‘real’ job and she was gaining new skills and confidence.

If we assume that Elizabeth is being misrepresented most people would think that she should have a way to protect her…

I recently realized Eve and I share a common problem. We’ve both allowed the desire for knowledge to rob us from the pleasure of trusting God.

It's About Time and that Dream Job!

Let’s face it. It is about time. It’s always about time. It never fails when I work with clients, they often say “It’s about time” but WHY they say it often separates those who are committed and those who are still making excuses.

Where Are You On the About Time Spectrum?
