New Year's Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions - I hate 'em. I don't need to wait for the new year to make adjustments. I should be doing that the whole year through.

But here's the thing. I'm human. And even when I know the right thing to do I don't always do it (I'm on a journey toward self-improvement just like the rest of us). Therefore, the new year is a good time to refocus, to reprioritize, and recommit.

Thanksgiving Gratitude

This is by no means an exhaustive list; how could it be?

These are just some of the things for which my gratitude is overflowing this Thanksgiving.

If I've left you off the list, it's not intentional.

Everyone I've met has blessed my life and you are no exception.

Insights to Grow Your Small Business

You need tools and insights to grow your small business, but you’re too swamped to even look up from your To Do list.

If you’re like many small business owners, you barely have time for yourself. You’ve got products to develop, sales to make, employees to tend to, customers to serve, bills to pay, and books to keep.

That doesn’t leave a lot of time to search out, much less find, valuable thoughts and ideas to help you do what you do even better.

That’s where I hope to help. I research successful individuals and companies and provide tools and insights about what they're doing so you can keep your eyes where they belong--your business.

Live the Four Agreements in Real Life

I try to live the Four Agreements in real life, although I do it very imperfectly and it's still in progress. But that's what real life is - halting, slow, steady progress. There is no overnight success, there are no shortcuts.

Here's what I've learned about the importance of and the rewards I've gained from my imperfect efforts to live the Four Agreements in real life.
