Isn’t that just part of the way things work?
As a kid, I was blessed to have a mother who cooked and prepared a variety of dinner meals. Inevitably, there would be main dishes or sides that did NOT look or smell very appealing and she would insist that me and my brothers take at least one bite to try it. Most of the time, it tasted better than it looked, and as a result, I am now a “foodie” who loves to try new foods. (Thanks, Mom!)
As my kids were growing up, my wife and I implemented the same rule, calling it a “No, Thank You”…Continue
Isn’t that just part of the way things work?
I recently shared this story on Facebook, where is received a positive response so I consider it worth repeating. …Continue
I was sitting in a management team meeting the other day, and one of the company’s owners, famous for his distracted nature, started laughing while one of the other owners was talking. Everyone in the meeting stopped and looked at him and he explained that he was reading an email and found part…Continue
Are you a busy entrepreneur, trying to stay above water with your crazy schedule and work load? If you answer yes to any or all of the questions below, it may be time to consider hiring a Virtual Assistant:
*Do you handle all of your daily, weekly or monthly administrative tasks on your own, only to have little time to concentrate on your core business, such as selling or marketing?
Today is Leap Day! - February 29th - the day that is added to our calendar in years that are divisible by 4 - unless that year is divisible by 100 in which it is not added - unless the year is divisible by 400 in which case it is ...
The reason we add the day is because the time it takes for the earth to revolve around the sun is slightly longer than 365 days (actually 365.256 days). So, if this day were not added, eventually we would have a blizzard…Continue
It’s no secret fiber keeps your digestive system working well. Most people also know that it helps slow digestion of meals so it’s great for weight loss, reduces cancer risk and also sweeps toxins out of your body, all of which add up to reducing the risk of disease overall. I talked…Continue
Most potential clients call upon me for help answering the question: Is counseling really right for me?
The difference between counseling and coaching can be murky at times, and I hope to add some clarity here. To draw this distinction, I use the analogy of swimming versus rowing a boat.
When a person is suffering from deep emotional wounds, her daily life can feel like a struggle to keep her head above water. She's paddling hard in deep water, barely able to swim. She is…Continue

Approximately 90% of people who begin online courses never finish them. This can be a source of great frustration for entrepreneurs who are trying to leverage courses to extend their reach and grow their businesses. Why invest the time and money needed to develop online courses if no…Continue

Wow! Has it been a year? I have made a complete shift in focus and direction. I am now full time in a large emergency department as a Paramedic.
Our church is really getting serious about getting members prepared for emergencies. My wife and I pulled the trigger and are now "The Happy Preppers"
We just launched a website and are selling survival and camping gear. It was an opportunity we couldn't pass up.
I was formerly known as Alan the Bike Guy, but that business was…Continue
When we grow up as kids we remember the kid that always told everyone how great they were. This was usually the kid who was terrible at something. So as we become adults many of us don't like to talk about our accomplishments. As I write articles and books I can become uncomfortable too when I share some of my work. It reminds me of a line I have heard…Continue
C.S. Lewis said “Comparison is the root of discontent”. With more and more access to media and things like Facebook and other social platforms, it is so tempting (and easy) to compare ourselves and our circumstances to others. Maybe it’s the neighbor’s nice, new car; or their big, new house; or their family trip to New Zealand. Or maybe it’s noticing a blog that is flashier than ours, or a tribe that is bigger. It’s ok to notice those things. The danger is in letting those…Continue
Make a Fortune Friday
Last month I introduced Make a Fortune Friday. On the last Friday of each month, I review a book that will help you to be Kairosive – take action to ignite change.
As we transition to the second month of the year, let us not forget those goals and resolutions we committed to one month ago. Of the most common New Year’s Resolutions, gaining control of personal finances is a top priority. One of the best books I read last…Continue
Most of us are conditioned by our diets to primarily burn glucose as our primary fuel, which actually inhibits our body's ability to access and burn body fat. So that makes it almost impossible to lose weight. Add to that we’ve been brainwashed for years to believe fat is bad and makes us fat when that couldn’t be…Continue
A key lesson I remember from reading Michael Masterson's "7 years to 7 figures", is that if you want to be a better person, you must replace bad habits with good habits.
Smoking is among the worst skeleton groups I have had in my proverbial closet over the last 10 years...
I was a wide-eyed Yankee lad full of ambition, with residence in Toronto, Canada that fateful Halloween night of my first cigarette. Perhaps characteristic of Achilles, I fainted in my Greek…Continue
I have made a list of 3 questions to ask that are specific to hiring a bookkeeper. In addition to your regular interview questions, these questions will give you a glimpse into the…Continue
I’m sure that many of you reading this made a resolution earlier this month to get organized, declutter your home, finally get your finances in order, stop wasting time, or perhaps all of the above! Right about now (one month into your resolution) is when most people start to fade on achieving their goal. You might have had great motivation starting out. All too easily, as life continues along, your reason for wanting to achieve this goal and your drive to do so fall by the wayside and…Continue
