Pursuit of that which retreats

It was probably my first summer during high school when it hit me; I don’t do well with “jobs”.  Believe me its not the work I deplore, even if I did make donuts or cleaned motel rooms as my introduction to the labor force.  No, it was the mind numbing monotony and meaningless repetitive motion that…

The American Dream Queen

In this new economy where double-digit unemployment is the accepted norm, many believe the “American Dream” as we know it, is a thing of the past. Much like our long lost manufacturing industry driven overseas by government policies and suffocating regulations, or even displaying our nation’s flag in public (Fox News), the “transformation” of this country is…

Keep it in neutral

I am not a professional psychologist or counselor, but it sure seemed like I played one with most of the women in my life (lol).  Perhaps it was my background in the “self-help” industry or constant yet questionable attempt at “personal development”… Regardless, from the courses I took in college to the many books I’ve studied, a…

Herding Cats…

I can’t think of many business propositions or even personal endeavors that can be successfully accomplished alone.  At some point in any project, you have to have a team.  The era of multi-tasking has produced a generation of generalists and very few “experts”.  That is unless you studied a specific profession like accounting, law, or the practice of medicine,…

My October trick becomes a November treat!

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…

Drug costs nothing to sneeze at…

So Obamacare is officially the “law of the land”, and regardless of what you think or what type of “kool-aid” you may drink, health care in America is in deep trouble.  In fact, its been spinning out of control for decades, well before the “Affordable Care Act” was passed so we could “See whats in…

I gotta get mine!

Succeeding in business certainly requires focus, determination, persistence and hard work. Recruiting good partners is often critical as well, since last time I checked, “no man (or women) is an island”… Having a sincere “why” you want to do something, with goals and dreams to fuel your business, is prerequisite for surviving the process.  A…
