At one point or another in your career, you have probably encountered the nightmare boss. The one who looks over your shoulder while you work. The one who asks for a report just as when you are about to clock out. The nightmare boss is the paragon of micromanaging.

Everyone needs to know where to turn to for help and that goes for every small business owner. At every turn we make a dozen decisions in a day and for extra challenging ones, we sit on it, even consult a mentor, or a friend.
Do not underestimate lessons from the printed word. It is good to have a few books collected to serve as your pick-me-up, your motivation, and your guide.

It was (and still is) one thing that I had always in my mind when I had to lead a project and especially in my first steps! It was something that I repeated again and again, as my personal mantra, to help me focus on the important issues of the project at hand! And it is something that became a sort of a habit of mine!…

You still have to go to your work, to pay one or more bills, to get the kids from school (or to take them there!), to find time for some reading, to go in the gym, to visit a friend, to see a movie, to meet with your parents, etc. The list never…Continue

The post title is a quote from John Maxwell who appeared on Dave Ramsey's radio show on Friday, November 14. It's a powerful warning against complacency.

Scott Speight is the guest of this episode. Scott, like most of us, is a very common man struggling with many of the same issues that we might have. He doesn't claim to be perfect and he certainly doesn't have all the answers. Scott has been fortunate in his life to make a ton of mistakes and fail at a lot of things. Yes, he did say fortunate. You see, Scott believes that the only way to be successful at anything you do, is to fail a few times…Continue

For over 10 years I have been traveling to Romania, Bulgaria, Germany, and Austria to conduct training and empowerment conferences for front-line leaders.

Ray and I met last year at the Platform Conference, and we both knew immediately that our meeting was a divinely inspired…Continue
