Back when I was working my old job in behavioral health, monthly we would have meetings about distributing a newsletter to the community. Essentially, it would be a way by which our resident Psychiatrists and Social Workers could tout their clout... after all, a full third of any given publication was comprised…

There’s Too Much to Do!

There’s not enough time in the day!

“Ha!” I say. “Hah!”

Every person on the earth has the same number of seconds each day – it all depends on how you use them toward your own personal and professional success.

Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Tony Robbins, Barbara Cochran – they share every minute with you – and me and every other business owner. So why isn’t everyone equally as successful?

Ballerinas on the Basketball Court?

I’ve been thinking about basketball lately – wonder why – but the thought I have been thinking about is about player strengths. Professional athletes are focused on their strengths and because of that, they have the opportunity to really excel.

Can you image what it would be like to put a championship level basketball pro and put him on the baseball or football field? Would that make any sense? What about putting that basketball player in the role of a ballerina. Does that…

On the Way to Rich... I Found I Was Already There

My husband Matt and I watched a documentary called "On the Way to School" this morning. It's streaming on Netflix now, if you're subscribed... highly recommended, needless to say, since I'm basing this whole post around it.

Sophie Scholl or 48 Days

Last year, I taught my students the 48 Days to the Work You Love.  I thought it would be exciting for a bunch of 15-year-old 9th graders to start developing job-hunting skills that I didn't learn until after military and college.  I also taught them about a World War II hero named Sophie Scholl, through one of my favorite movies…
