My business mentor the incomparable MP reminds us often to “keep the main thing the main thing.” If you’re a loyal reader, you know what’s at the center of my vision board that hangs above the center of my desk. If you’re new here, I won’t keep you in the metaphorical dark. At the center… Continue reading Linus
Napoleon Hill wrote, “The whole world is undergoing a change of such stupendous proportions that millions of people have become panic-stricken with worry, doubt, indecision, and fear!” in 1938. Nineteen-Thirty-Eight. One Nine Three Eight. Do we know people who are in that mode now in 2018? Two-Thousand-Eighteen? Two Zero One Eight? So, have we not… Continue reading Stall-Out?
Alternate title: How We are Crushing Our Goals As I write this, the Rescue group with which I volunteer is processing its 40th adoption in 2018. 40. 4-0. In 2016, we completed 51 adoptions.

There’s something magical in balance of things. Maybe it’s because I was raised by a Libra; my mother is the one always making sure everyone… Continue reading Balance
Gabby tells us to step in fully. And I’ve been doing that, every day. I’m stepping in and up, creating opportunities for growth in the day-job realm, going big in Rescue, arms locked with the most dedicated team, and establishing weekly classes for the summer to share our incredible wellness products. I’ve stepped in fully,… Continue reading More about Masterclass
People sure seem to find a lot to complain about. Now, I can get all cliché-crazy here (You can’t have a positive life with a negative mind!) but I’ll try to keep it my voice, as much as possible, today. Through Rescue, I don’t hear many complaints from the volunteer team, but when I do… Continue reading Take Action
