I’m smarter than this clutter!

My dad used to say, “Kristen, you’re so smart, you’re stupid!”

While not the most affirming, take a look at the truth in that statement. Just because you have BRAIN and BOOK smarts, doesn’t mean you have PRACTICAL smarts.

Even the smartest person can become overwhelmed to stupidom by expense reports, monthly bills, finances and just plain mail cluttering up an office or home, if he/she doesn't know what to do with the mess.

This costs money, time, energy and health.…

You’re too old, fat, ugly, skinny, bald, or whatever to make it.

That title is from a myth I busted in my book Breaking into Acting.

It's really not true. As a matter of fact, you may succeed in what you want to do simply because you look different. I do. I'm the only guy on the conference circuit not afraid to rock a fierce, long red Viking beard.

All those other guys out there doing motivational speaking and leadership seminars think a nice suit makes up for a lack of…

Will you become the master you aspire to be?

Remember when you started driving and everything felt like it was happening so fast? Remember that first time you got on the highway and went 100 km an hour? It felt like so much was going on at once. You tried to watch the speed of the car and make sure that you didn’t run into any of the other…

Want a successful business? Make sure you answer these 10 questions first.

The life of entrepreneurship can, from the outside, look like a bed of roses. Yes, today I started work at 9 a.m. and read for two hours, then wrote for two hours, and am now writing more at 2:30 p.m., sitting in the living room watching my kids play in the snow.

But that’s my highlight…

Tips to find that elusive Margin in our lives

We’ve had a winter here with rare amounts of snow in Chilliwack, BC. In an area that might see one snow day in a year, we’ve had three this week and at least three around Christmas time.

That’s meant I’ve pushed people out of the roads that aren’t plowed. I’ve shoveled for neighbours that…

It takes more than a business plan to be successful

We’re told that one of the first steps in thinking about any new business is to write a business plan. Out of this you’ll get to see how viable (or not) the business you want to build is. Books and books are written on how to write a great business plan. I’ve even got some on my shelf.

Keep the negative away by Broadcasting Happiness

Group Leader
Skyrocket to Success in 2017

The new year is less than a month away and, like me, you've probably been bombarded with free goal-setting worksheets designed to help you put your goals on paper. That's a great idea because writing down goals is a common activity among people who actually achieve their goals. So, you don't need me to give you advice on setting and writing down goals. I'm going to assume you already have your goals in place.…

What Waiting Really Costs You

I hate to be the bearer of news that might frighten you, but if you are like most people. you are most likely not even remotely thinking of Christmas until at least after Thanksgiving, even though as I am typing this blog post, you have less than 50 days (Yikes!) to decorate, purchase and wrap gifts, bake, and plan your holiday get-togethers.

Okay, that is only the beginning of the news that might get your heart in a tizzy.

Ever wait to purchase something (toys, tickets to an…

Defeat worry with these 4 questions

Some of us have a problem with worry. It doesn’t matter what we're worrying about -- we can find a way to worry about pretty much anything. If business is bad, we worry how we'll find new clients. If business is going well, we wonder which current client will end up being a problem, and we…

When Your Selling isn't Gelling

You're really NOT in a productive business if you are not selling anything. Even a not for profit, must "sell" it's benefits to contributors in order to fund raise.

Sometimes the problem is obvious; maybe the business owner really isn't visible, available or promoting a business that is easy to access, maybe the business is…

The Most Important Rule to Remember When Climbing

Several weeks ago my buddy took me on a 12 mile journey over the river and through the woods and to the top of the mountain we went!  I was only going to be there for a few days, so he really wanted me to experience a fantastic climb that led us through a part of the Rocky Mountains all the way to Sky Pond.  It was such an incredible journey for me even though I was exhausted and sore the following week.  As we got closer to the waterfall in the picture above, he stopped me…
