Your Shirt is on Backwards and Inside Out: Caregivers are Stressed

We are all aware of the fight or flight response when something scary happens.  The body automatically does things that will help us escape, evade, or fight the attacker.  When humans lived more closely with nature in a hunting and gathering society, these automatic responses from our bodies were necessary to keep us from being eaten.

The body releases hormones like…

We Think In Pictures

When our daughter was in Uganda, she went on a gorilla trek in the mountains. They found a family of gorillas that had a huge silverback alpha male you see pictured here. This gorilla ended up charging them and stopped within a couple feet of the group. Terror was in the…

How to Make Better Decisions with Love

Here’s a Valentine’s gift you can enjoy all year—how to use love to make better decisions, especially in gray areas.

When my children were small, rumors circulated about the hidden dangers behind some benign-looking toys, video games, and children’s TV programs. Confusing messages still bombard us today. How do we make good decisions when experts can’t even agree?…

The Culture Shock of Entrepreneurship

It boggles my mind when I read about an entrepreneur who is working on their 7th or 8th business. HOW do they just start a new business? They make it sound so easy, like it’s just another box to be checked on the task list for the day:

  • Go to grocery store.
  • Get a haircut.
  • Start a new business.

Then it occurred to me: Entrepreneurship is a type of culture! Much like being in a foreign country, there is a set of customs and…

Stop Leading like an Impostor... 3 Steps to Becoming a “Great” Leader!

It happens to the best of us.  We leave the comforts of our homes and while driving to work, something mysteriously magical happens … we transform into a totally different person—our “working self.”  We become an “impostor,” far removed from the person we are at home…our “true self.”  Over time, being an impostor can lead to a life filled with untapped leadership potential.  Today, I’d like to offer you 3 Steps that can help you stop leading like an impostor.

How to Measure Your Success

I love to hike in the Georgia mountains…unless it’s cold or hot or windy or raining.

Or I’m feeling tired, or unmotivated or … Well you get the idea. 

It’s sort of a love-hate relationship to be honest. 

I hate the effort and…

Surviving the "normal" in special needs parenting...

Several conversations between my wife and myself and with other families who are caregivers of medically fragile children/special needs lately have been over the times in our lives that are referred to as "normal". The consensus is that we tend to dread them. It sounds quite opposite of what one would expect doesn't it? I hope to shed some light on this and maybe it will speak to you and your family as well.…

Help Yourself with Self Confidence and Positive Thinking

We are all born with self confidence, but we lose some of it along the way. Positive thinking changes into negative thinking and we cease to be confident. Much of it depends on our state of mind. It is all within ourselves and we need to decide how well we should live our life. Negative thoughts and…

Face Your Fears

I was shopping with Ashley when she was about ten years old and we passed a karaoke event going on in the center of the mall.  I wasn’t much interested but Ashley was curious so we paused and watched for a few moments.  The emcee for this event announced that anyone who would sing into the microphone would receive two free tickets to a family play at the prestigious Tennessee Performing Arts Center in downtown Nashville.  Ashley said, “Do it, Mommy! Do it!”  I replied, “Not in…

Is a Business Refusing to Give You 1099?

Is this happening with you? This year I had three companies who did not send me 1099’s. This week I contacted all three. They all got back to me very quickly. Two of them are sending me the 1099’s so I can include the forms when I file. However, the third company while acknowledging that they paid me, is refusing to issue me a 1099. Fortunately I got that in an email so I can include that correspondence when I file. Even after…
