Free…or not to be

I’ve been warned by many a mentor, business partner, and friend to refrain from opining politics in public. Particularly on a social media forum if the site is not specific as to its content.  As contemptuous as the conversations tend to be when contemplating all things political, “The time is near“… So please excuse this…

Accepting the Rejecting

Any successful human being knows all too well that rejection is a significant part of life.  Sales is simply a numbers game, with more people saying “NO”, than deciding to buy.  Marketing professionals understand that most of the message will never be embraced, if ever even noticed… I spent the first decade of my career…

Scars into Stars…

From Mom to marketing mentors, coaches and colleagues, they all say it’s OK to fail.  Just keep trying and do your best, “nothing ventured nothing gained, right?  Along the way you will certainly pay, in either price or pain, but there is always something to gain… As many of you may also say, I have…

At the end of the day, you just gotta get paid!

Good business ideas are a dime a dozen, and boy do I have a lot of loose change lying around. From blogs to books to miracle creams, this one will certainly allow me to achieve my dreams, I think… During my morning walk, I usually “discover” some new twist that will propel my business to the next…

Making $ or making a difference?

As most Americans trade “hours for dollars” at some type of “J.O.B.” (just over broke), those evil and greedy rich “fat cats” continue to be demonized.  From the “lame” stream media to those self-serving career politicians, passing the “buck” and blaming the achievers appears to be the strategy of the day… So I assume that those bashing…
