Goals Don’t Have Feelings

But the life we give them does.  Yesterday I felt overcome with a feeling of despair. It wasn’t quite the feeling you get when there isn’t anything left to do. It was more like the feeling you get when you have spent your energy and then realized the...

A Small Blurb on Leadership

Do you care?Can you help me?Can I trust you? Every follower should be asking their leaders these three questions. (This is not my original idea, and I am not aware of its origin to give credit.) And here is my additional thought to this concept. Anyone who chooses to...

the broken strategy of more

Many of us have a desire to fix things with more. More is a broken strategy because more is always linked to more, more. In case that didn’t land: doing more begets doing more until the vessel breaks.   The most basic picture I can show you is with...

#bettertogether

#bettertogeher is my mantra for business. As a matter of fact, I have laced into my mission vision values statement.  Mission: To cause thinking that effects “better” by inspiring and collaborating with people.  Vision: To engineer a platform...

HOW TO RISE OUT OF CHAOS

We can agree that things are pretty unusual right now. I am not sure anyone of us reading this would have ever predicted the reactions to COVID-19 that are happening in our country. The mob mentality that is breeding anarchy isn’t quite finished. The craze of...

Break the Cycle

 On a scale of 1-10, 1 being smooth and flowery and 10 being honest and upfront, we need to talk at an 11. Like, tell you your dog is ugly kind of an 11.   First, let me say this: I can write this blog because I talk to 570+ business owners every year....

From an Old Blog: Kindness

I wrote this for Adam before he was born. I dug it up this week. It felt fitting to share. This is the part of the legacy I want to leave. In my line of business I know a few things: I may never be the smartest person in the room, I may never be the most handsome...
