How do you determine if a job is a good fit for you?
I’ll give you the answer in a moment. But first, a story:
My first job out of college was selling billboards in rural Kentucky. 80% of my day was cold calling small and medium businesses. I got the job because I was friendly, articulate, and people generally liked and trusted me. Perfect for sales! Well, I was miserable and my results were sporadic. What’s tragic however is that I spent years wondering what… Continue

When I was a child, I rode my bicycle over the flat neighborhoods of Savannah, Georgia. I was Annie Oakley on my faithful horse. My girlfriend and I cycled together to ballet classes that ended at dusk. On the way home, we sped past a house shrouded with hanging moss. We were sure it was haunted. We’d both spotted a ghostlike flicker in the window!…

So, how do you go about creating new content online? There are several avenues to choose from, with blogging and podcasting being… Continue

Determination – it’s kind of a funny concept. It’s around us all the time – from the person who drags their sleepy body out of bed at 5am to workout before going into the office to the person who works 3 jobs just to feed their family – but lots of times we don’t even notice it. When we do though, it is a thing of beauty.
I had the opportunity to be a coach for my daughter’s traveling softball team last summer. It was a fairly young travel team, so, in the beginning of the year they… Continue

These words were the beginning of a new journey in my life one year ago.
I was a single dad and working at the job I had spent the last 12 years of my life. I was tired of dealing with things that I had been putting up with for way too long. I was tired of working 12+ hour shifts, four days a week and missing time with my kiddo. I was tired of feeling trapped and like I had no future. I was simply tired.
Over the last few months that I was… Continue
