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…Continue
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?…Continue

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…Continue

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.
The film centers on different kids as they make their way to school, many of them several hours away and across dangerous terrain. Some kids are in Africa, some in Asia and South America. Most of the kids walk, some take horses or intermittently hitchhike, and one…Continue
Reverse mortgages are heavily advertised as a great way to provide retirement income for cash strapped homeowners. Usually you’ll see reverse mortgages advertised using an aging TV or movie star encouraging seniors to unlock the equity in their home to provide…Continue
Almost everyone wants to have their own business. Of course, you don't want to spend the rest of your life working for someone else. It is easy to think of an idea on what business to venture. Even if you don't have a background in operating a business. If a great business idea knocks on your mind, the best thing to do is to act!

Starting a business is not easy, you have to plan for it carefully…Continue

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…Continue
Recently, I was talking with a potential client. She had just left a job due to issues that didn’t mesh with her values.
She was feeling down about it, thinking maybe she should have just hung in there a little bit longer.Continue

Work is spinning out of control. Too many #1 priorities. They are all due now. People are freaking out. You just want to run away.
But you can’t.
So what do you do?
Here are five things that can help:
Take a deep breath. Literally. This may sound like something your parents or grandparents used to say. But science has shown it does relax you. When you are tense or anxious your breathing tends to get shallow. This in turn will make it harder to focus. Taking a deep…Continue
I wasn't really considering a job move or changing locations again. There were rumors floating around the company about layoffs, but I tried my best to keep my head down and focus.…Continue
