Find them, treasure them.

I have been around the block ya know, this ain’t my first rodeo honey. What I have seen, what I have endured, what I have risen above has been hard. But it’s been good too. Not everything that is hard is good, but from my experience just about everything that’s good is hard, at least […]

Stop, take it in, but then keep going.

I spend a lot of time reminding myself to stop and enjoy the journey. Paying attention to the life around you is important. Live the life, and create the memories with the ones you love. Don’t sacrifice the whole point for the hustle and pursuit of success. However, you still need the hustle. Make sure […]

When others quit, leaders must push through.

The path of leadership is never straight. It’s never easy. It’s never the walk in the park that others think it is while watching from a distance. The thing about leadership is it’s lonely, darn lonely; and hard, darn hard. What’s worse than that is it’s often the leader’s responsibility to not show the real […]

Embrace Truth Through Strength.

It’s gonna happen. At some point it’s gonna happen. Business will kick you right in the balls. HARD. You’re gonna face a situation where the “easy” path will not be the “right” path. You’re gonna even get advice to do something that actually makes sense but is not “right.” You’re going to evaluate your options, and there […]

Invest in the future.

Invest in YOUR future. I don’t mean, “save money, diversify your portfolio, and create multiple streams of income.” (however really; freaking do those things for sure.) I mean, invest in your future by the things you do. There is nothing more value to you, nothing as limited, nothing as precious as your time. How do […]

Determination

It’s gonna hit ya in the face, and it’s gonna hit HARD. You’re probably not gonna be ready, you won’t be prepared, and you’re probably going to be a little shocked when it happens. Life Life has a habit of whacking you in face when you least expect it. You’re cruising a long in life […]

Breathe deeply and press on.

Day after day, mile after mile. Life can get busy, DARN busy. In fact so many wear their busyness like a badge of honor.   Do you know why you do what you do? Is there a purpose behind the busy, behind the constant barrage of “stuff” that must be done? Take time to pause […]

Purpose & Tenacity

Do you know what it takes to succeed at creating something new and amazing? Purpose, it takes purpose. Sure a lot of businesses can be created and successful with hard work. Don’t get me wrong, hard work is a prerequisite for anything of significance to workout. So hard work is required, but by itself is […]

Do you know Sloppiness, have you met him?

Mind the details. Success dictates every detail be scrutinized.   I had the opportunity to meet & visit with Michael Etzel, the founder and owner of Beaux Freres winery. He is an amazing man, who cares deeply about the details, he wouldn’t hire Sloppiness either. Sloppiness never accomplished much. When you first meet him, you […]

You might just die by these new rules… OR THRIVE!

Bottom line, the business world is changing… NO SCRATCH THAT, HAS ALREADY CHANGED… For the past 100 years, it was good enough to have a solid product, market it through traditional channels, sell some, have an outsourced customer service team at least acting as if they are… Want to read the rest?
