We are ALL “in sales”! Of course, there will be people who disagree because – well – perhaps they consider themselves to be “above” the status of “sales person”.

Of course, there are 2 other options: STOP right HERE and freeze with analysis paralysis (FEAR), or go back from whence ...

Joining the flock seems to be safe in unusual environs. There’s a tendency to relegate individuality to blending into the midst of the mass of sheeple . . . hoping not to be noticed and singled out. Dare you to be different than the others? What if you’re WRONG? What will other people think? What...

Every day, the world opens a tad bigger for all of us . . . as we venture beyond the confines of our abodes. It seems that every conversation reveals more freedom, and there’s more “pep in the steps” for those who’ve just had their first post-quarantine restaurant dine in experience (I had mine l...

Putting a Band-aid on a Compound FractureThe lead story in The New York Times “Friday Briefing” REALLY got my attention this morning. There is NOTHING partisan about this . . .

Your List of Unfinished ProjectsHow many projects have you started . . . and not (yet) finished? Why haven’t you taken the time to complete them? When will you get around to finishing them?

Confidence in your power withinThe best coaches are those who have mastered the art of “Tough Love” They “teach” us how to fish instead of giving us a fish. It’s kinda like an “Intel Inside” thing . . . Humming along inside while being always present and invisible above the surface. I have the wo...

The bootstrapper creates value Seth Godin‘s timing for this message is SPOT ON! “One of the most powerful things you can do is build a useful business.
