Actually having teenagers doesn’t suck.

I’m not saying it’s not going to be hard though. “I freaking can’t WAIT until my kids are out of the house” she said with a serious look, the kind of look that you know you shouldn’t question. It was the same response I’ve gotten many times. Here’s another one, “How old are your kids?” […]

System Reset – You’re Drifting, get on track

Focus. It’s so critical. It’s so essential. It’s so obvious. It’s also so overlooked. Focus is not just overlooked, but often entirely dismissed! So much effort spent on #Hustle #Passion #Energy #Drive #Ambition. Do you know what you’re hustling for, do you know what all the drive, passion, and ambition is even about? I have […]

Hindsight is always 20/20.

Knowing what you know now, it’s powerful. It would have been so amazing to know it then. When you started, when you needed to know. You didn’t though. You didn’t know then what you know now. You simply didn’t have the luxury of the experience and wisdom that you have now. So what are you […]

Do you know your why?

Do you know why? Do you know why you push when others quit? Do you know why you believe when the world doubts? Do you know why you strive so hard?   So many push and push and push and push, until they get where they are headed. The trouble is they don’t know why […]

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.

No matter what, don’t let them stop you.

How often do you listen. How often do you pay attention to the doubters, the naysayers. Do the haters influence you? Why? Why do you care what they think. Why does it bother you if they don’t believe in you, your vision, your dreams? They don’t know you know, they don’t know if you’re right […]

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 […]

They can take everything from you.

Everything. They can steal, trick, borrow, beg, and take it all. Well, not everything. They can’t steal your memories. The time you share with friends and family, the time you invest in your kids and enjoy with your spouse. That time, those memories, are yours forever. No one can take them from you. Those memories […]

A friend sticks with you through thick and thin!

There are friends, and then there are “real” friends. Sometimes we mistakenly think that our friends are actually “real” friends. Then something happens. Something happens to challenge the core of the friendship, and the true colors are seen. The true colors are flowing high and proud on the flags of their actions. There’s nothing quite like […]

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?
