“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” – Colin Powell
Nobody has ever claimed that starting a business is an easy job. There most definitely will be many trials and errors and you will learn from your mistakes. In case you are under the impression that you will hit the target easily every time and there will not be any errors or setbacks that would put a damper…Continue
Polyurethane fumes assaulted my nose when I opened my car door. We’d spent a week out of town while our floors were being refinished. I couldn’t wait to see them. I peeked through the windows. My stomach folded. They didn’t look like the furniture I’d asked them to match.

One day when working on the ambulance, we received an emergency call for foot pain. Honestly getting a call of this nature happens all the time in 911 systems. However, this ‘foot pain’ call was about to get very interesting.

Years ago, I worked for a large corporation that was amenable to home offices. In fact they prided themselves for their "positive contribution to environmental concerns" which truly worked for my benefit.…Continue

During tough times, our excuses will come easier. Think about it. The common cold suddenly becomes a major deal when our kids go back to school after not having their homework from the night before complete. That old knee injury seems to act up more on the days that you don't feel like going out running. Facebook suddenly becomes a top priority over that report you were struggling with.…

I recently took a millionaire out to lunch. It was incredibly fun, cheap and the value I got from the time and money spent was priceless! Here are just 3 of the things I learned.
Wednesday is October 1st. Can you believe that 2015 is just a few months away? For me, the last 9 months has been a time of transition and reconnecting with purpose. My family has also endured quite a few challenges; the spring and summer months were extremely difficult as many loved ones have battled serious…Continue

Wow. The last question I worked through from “The Millionaire Messenger” today was: “If in 12 months I looked back at my last year, I would know I had stayed on the path to mastery if I could see I had…” As I finished completing that statement I realized I had just defined my business…Continue

Aloha my friends. Here is another guest post I did for The Good Men Project. Catchy headline huh? I really liked this one. Hope you do as well!
The first thirty days of taking Dan’s six month challenge have had a profound impact on my thinking. I have always been a voracious reader and learner, but while I generally had specific times of the day earmarked for reading, they were often hit and miss depending on what life threw my way. I know the practice of making an unmovable appointment with myself for a minimum of thirty minutes each day, and taking notes on everything I read and learn during that period, is developing a…Continue

This is a more light-hearted question for you. Do you have a humorous automotive story to share? Something clean of course. Something like, you either asked someone or someone asked you to pick up some headlight fluid or a muffler bearings while at the Car Parts Store since you were out?
As for me, one story that pops up once in a while was that when I was much younger and attending the local junior college, I worked in an Auto Parts Store here in Florida. It was…
We have all done this before, put too much on our plate by honoring too many requests for our time. I know I have. Perhaps you have as well. It's because we want to be helpful and we hate to say no to anyone who asks for our help. This particular trait is a major contributing factor to burnout.
Yet, we find it just so hard to say no. So, against our better judgment, we say yes to whatever the request may be and regret it immediately. We know we are already stretched too thin. We don't…Continue
