I Can't Ask for Money - I'm Just a Kid!

Things are busy busy for yours truly during the holidays. Thanks to following the teachings of Dan Miller, I have so much work to accomplish before 2016 gets here that I almost forgot to post this poignant blog! And I love every minute of the work I'm doing. Hope you are the same...

I wanted to relay the story of a friend of mine who had been getting her daughter to do Christmas cards for her coworkers. Dan and Joanne just wrapped up their excellent "Raising Creative Kids"…

Ideas and Dreams

Hello again!

Here are some of my ideas about the future, based on things I actually want to do. Some of these ideas are very much keeping it simple - the kind of ideas that I could make a plan around, work, and pay bills with. Others are more sweeping ideas that include a larger dream, and I think you'll sense a theme here.

Are You a Professional?

In order to build a business and escape the rat races, like so many of us, are attempting to do, you first need to be a professional and do the work.

Passionate Endeavor Or Just Getting By?

What is more risky? To pursue something you love that you have a talent for, or take the safe job that you feel no connection to and hope doesn’t drive you to despair? Putting on a false face everyday, pretending that you care, going through the motions, hoping you meet the productivity benchmarks. Certainly this is the case in many workplaces. We have workplaces full of people working at only 25 to 30 percent of their true capacity. I believe that the only way to do your best, most…

Don't Be Afraid to Finish Work Early

I have three books handed over to two different editors, presently. I also have another project, a logo, being reviewed by a committee. Not gonna lie - it's like Iron Chef over here with how many cooks seem to be in the kitchen.

So who did I hire, yesterday? A personal assistant.

In past job-lives, I've done the personal and executive assistant gig, myself. It was sweet! All I did was check my boss's emails, consolidate what they were asking of him, and send off some lists. I…

Feel Like You've Lost Your Mojo?

A few days ago, I was talking with a neighbor who is in a unique stage of her life. She retired recently and although she has been looking forward to her “free time” she realized more than she expected.

“I get up in the morning and all the hustle and bustle I was used to is down to a slowed, almost non-existent pace. I thought I would love it, but I feel like I’m irrelevant.” she commented.

Holding an administrative position in a healthcare agency meant her life seldom had a…

Only for those Who Need to Make Some Extra Moola

Hey, I got something we can all do together. Let’s make some extra money. Woohoo!

I’m talking about odd jobs, without getting jobs that can help break up some of these boulders in your way.

That seems to be a big wall for many of us. You always hear, “if I had an extra $1000 every month that would just change everything.

Actually, no. That would not change everything because if you’re capped out now, you’ll still be capped out when you make an extra $1000.…

Are You Looking for a Job or a Title?

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?

Could it be how we approach the good ol’ to-do list?…
