Contentment Declarations

The world does does such a good job of convincing us that the grass is greener on the other side. It screams at us that a new job, a new house, a new car, a new spouse, a new LIFE will make us happier. If we can just get there,…

Dealing With Millennials

Everyone talks about age, but it's not about age. It's about work ethic. Winning never gets old.

Lisa Leslie

And that’s the point. Millennials are our newest generation that we get to work with. They are way more connected than we ever have been. Millennials have…

Job Search- Why your networking isn't working

Why is it that everyone knows that networking is important, yet so few of us do it very well?

I think it has something to do with the old saying that “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”.  That implies that simply knowing and being around certain people automatically makes you more likely…

Put up or SHUT UP!

A few years ago, I heard Les Brown, a popular speaker say a phrase that has taken on a new meaning for me. I probably really have just "gotten it" to tell you the truth. It goes like this.

How you do…

Next Steps

Thank you all for our input. It seems that God's plans are turning out to be faster than mine. Last month's gross was equal to my take-home pay from my primary job. And I'm on track this month to have my gross pay from my business to equal my gross pay from my primary job. This will give me a really big shovel to get rid of my debt. So, now do I stay on track with both income streams to wipe out my debt, or do I take the slow and steady route (less stressful) and take a little more time to…

Before You Can Lead Anyone, Lead Yourself

When I was first in business for myself, I didn’t get this. I’ve found that most people don’t, regardless of what they are doing. You see, I thought that since I was the one in business, I had arrived. I focused on what I knew and what I was good at, which was just doing the work.

You can get by for a time running your ship this way, but all ships need a captain. And…

Planning Your Work Around The Life You Enjoy

We often look to weekends, evenings and vacation time - the leftovers - to do what we enjoy. What if work was part of the life you enjoy?

Smoky Meatball Subs


As the Fourth of July approached, I fretted over what to cook. Since my Traeger grill was only 4 days old, I definitely needed to utilize it. The "Smoky Meatball Subs" recipe on the Traeger website lept out at me. It's something delicious, something that wouldn't take a long…

Keep Going

I would agree that sometimes it is hard to get started, but once you do get started you have to face the second challenge. The challenge of continually making progress after the initial enthusiasm has worn off.

You have to admit, that we sometimes get excited about that new thing we have started. Whether it is the book we wanted to write, the blog we wanted to write; or there could be a dozen different things that someone like you has finally got started on.

Sometimes it just takes...some time.

This is one that is hard for me and maybe even for you.  I had loads of patience when I was younger, in high school and just a few years after that.  It seems like it has just seeped away from me over the years.  Not sure if it is age, maturity (or lack thereof) or what.  Currently, I feel like I should be able to do things NOW and not have to wait for whatever reason there might be out there for something to be done or happen. 

Is it because I am older?  I don’t think so.  I don’t…

Our two special needs kids have Wrecked our lives...

Did the headline grab your attention? Good, it was meant to, but not in the way you may be thinking. Sure, I could go down the path of "why me?" and all the things we miss out on as individuals and as a family because of having two children/siblings with special needs. There are missed opportunities, missed friendships, strained family relationships, misunderstandings of our motives or reasons by not being able to accept invitations to do things, why we have germ phobia...all part of the…

We all have a business within us

There has been a lot of people talking about the book, "The $100 Startup" by Chris Guillebeau. I have the book on hold at the library and I have read some of the introduction at Amazon. Several people have written blog posts and recorded podcasts to discuss it and endorse it.

The Path to Change


Have you ever been frustrated with someone who isn’t taking your advice? They keep coming to you over and over and asking you what they should do, so you tell them, but they don’t actually end up changing their behavior. At times it can make you want to pull your hair out and scream, “I know what you…

Don't "Wuz - Gonna" - Just Do It!

by Pete Ferguson

We all have that friend, coworker, or family member who will often start off a sentence ...

  • "I was going to (or I wuz gonna ...) fill your car up with gas, but then I forgot ..."
  • "I wuz gunna buy you a nice shirt for your birthday, but then I didn't know what color you like ..."
  • "I wuz gonna call you after your grandpa died…

Today’s reflection – Watch your mouth – It may be holding you back.

Jill was both eager and hungry; eager to find a better path and hungry to get back  on the journey.

Through the course of her own growth and development (bumps, bruises, false starts and all), this much she understood: life conditions don’t change by wishing they would or by debating with God that…
