“Oh, I could never do that because I don’t know enough.” “I don’t have enough money.” “I don’t know anyone.” Those are statements that I had uttered for the past 8 years. The thrill of starting a business and breaking out on my own had always been a strong desire for me, but I always came up with an excuse for why I never seemed to be successful in any of them. I had convinced myself that I was just a “jack of all trades but a master of none.”
Have you ever felt that way? I…Continue

People were all eager to join you to create a spectacular event or develop a joint venture, or partner on a project. So now you’re ready to move and … nothing.
Your emails and phone calls go unanswered for days. You ship off materials and drafts and what do you hear? Crickets. And more crickets.
Deadlines come and go with no submissions or comments. The eager beavers have become dead weight, slowing your pace, dragging you down. WTH?

Sorry, didn’t mean to make you cringe. But there is a reason I want you to think about hearing that drill rev up and then think about how it sounds as the dentist starts applying it to your tooth. The pressure, the sound, the way you take deep breaths to get through it.
Oh yeah, baby.
Now that you’ve got that feeling settled on you, I want to share that you can change how you feel about that ol’ drill.
We have LEARNED and PRACTICED that awful feeling. And we can…Continue
We have somewhere between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day. That averages out to 35 to 48 thoughts per minute. According to researchers, about 95% of our thoughts are repeated daily. That represents our mindsets. So, only about 5% of our thoughts have the possibility of challenging our mindsets. It's five against ninety-five. The odds are on the side of our established mindsets.
Your mindset is the power plant for…Continue
Side hustle. Hobby business. Part-time freelance work. These are all different phrases used to describe the same thing. I happen to like side hustle because it encapsulates the essence of what's required to achieve success—hustle. Hustle means to move or work in a quick and energetic way. We hustle when we are passionate about something.
My side hustle hasn't always been the same thing.…Continue
Do you remember learning how drive? You probably started by observing your parents or others driving. Then you may have taken Driver’s Ed in school. You read the text book and the official driver’s manual for your state. You took your test for your learner’s permit. You watched videos in class. Then you actually got into the car with your instructor and started driving. You practiced driving in town and on the highway. You learned how to parallel park. Then you went to the Department of…Continue
According to an article in the New York Times, the average income of the top 20% of wage earners increases 11% per year. At that rate, they double their income every six years. Meanwhile, the average income of the bottom 80% of wage earners increases only 3% per year. What causes the difference between financial success and mediocrity?
In his book, Get Smart, Brian Tracy says the difference between people in the top 20% and the bottom 80% is their commitment to…Continue
Everyone at some point has a dream. For many that dream is to start their own business. But, statistics show that less than 36% of people with that dream actually go through the steps to earn their living as an entrepreneur.
Seems like a lot of people talk about their dream but that talk really is CHEAP because Business Talk (talking about starting a business) will never make you any money.
Sharing your thoughts about starting a business is not a bad idea but simply sharing…Continue
One of my friends decided a few years back she was tired of not seeing the beautiful blooms in her yard that all the neighbors had. Armed with bulbs and seeds ordered from a gardening catelog and every tool imaginable from the local landscaping center, she set out to get her garden going.
Midway through the summer, even after much love, attention and fertilizing she really was not much closer to the garden of her dreams. ” I just don’t get it, she told a group of us one night, I did…Continue
Developing better money habits that lead to getting out of debt is one of those things everybody knows they should do, but sadly most don’t. I know Angie and I struggled for years with nagging debt that never seemed to go away. It wasn’t until we changed our money…Continue

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, “The best investment you will ever make as a leader is in developing other people.” Hands down this is both the most challenging task and the most rewarding as a leader. Anyone can delegate tasks. Very few leaders will…Continue

I know it’s only a few weeks into the New Year but statistics show that 25% of people abandon their New Year’s resolutions after 1 week! And 60% do so within 6 months. And the average person makes the same resolution 10 separate times without success.…Continue
If you use the f-word often, you might just find greater success. Faster, too.
No, we aren’t thinking of the same f-word. ~grin~ I am talking about failure.
Did that make your stomach sink?
Hogwash! Absolutely not. Let’s get this straight right now. Failure can be the…Continue

Since it is the holiday season and many of us are “out of our minds” with long lists of things to finish, I thought I would just share with you today. We can talk about dreaming, setting goals, and accomplishing next week!
This time of year gets so hectic! Everything…Continue
How will 2016 compare to 2015? Most people would answer that question with some degree of positive movement; few say they hope next year is worse than this year! Yet, those who fail to take an analytical look at the previous…Continue
In a few weeks, we will be winding down another year and starting to think about how we want to begin the next one. Many people go into a new year with high expectations and goals; nothing wrong with that, but a study from Scranton University discovered that only about 8% of the population who make resolutions actually achieve the end product they wanted; JUST 8%!
There are many thoughts about why people are unsuccessful in keeping resolutions but regardless of the reason, the…Continue
A lot of us have dreams and goals we are working hard to realize. Trying to unlock the success you want in the areas of career, family, financial, physical, spiritual, or self development can be a challenge.
However we define success in those areas, it is probably taking more time to…Continue
