Solve Your Own Problems

Do you consider yourself to be a resourceful person?

Are you actually able to own most of your own mistakes?

Are You Really Lazy or One of These 5?

Are You Really Lazy

Are you really lazy or is it something much deeper? 

Do you worry that you are becoming a chronic procrastinator?

While you may pawn off your lack of success or being where you want to be by merely stating that, “I’m just so lazy about doing __________.”  But sometimes the truth is much more revealing than that.  Have you thought about why you procrastinate more than you’d like?

For this post I will be using the terms “lazy” and “procrastinating/procrastination” interchangeably.  Even though they can have different meanings on their own.

Maybe Your Procrastination Is Really Perfectionism in Disguise

Give Yourself and Your Business A Spring Break

Enjoy a spring break.

Do you need a break? 

Many of us do, but the real question is, “Will you take time for one?”  Those of us alive today are living at a faster pace than any human beings who’ve ever walked the planet. 

Advertisers bombard us by telling us all what we cannot live without and how it’s now on sale.  Tech gadgets tell us how we can all “save” time, but as soon as we save time we find more things to fill our time with.  This often raises our expectations about how much we can accomplish with the time we have … Read the rest »

No One “Got” This Woman’s Comedy

Jokes My Father Never Taught Me

This was a great read from a woman who has had to make her own success by NOT banking or dovetailing on the success of her famous father. In her book, Jokes My Father Never Taught Me, Rain Pryor, decided to create her own style of comedy despite the problems she encountered.  

For years, she struggled with rejection. No one “got” her comedy—it was a different genre than what was currently being performed. It was also different from her famous father’s brand of comedy. However, despite these setbacks, she went on to create her own unique style—her own USP … Read the rest »

What Your Father Has to do With Your Financial Success or Failure

A Father's Influence

By Wendy Baldwin, a guest writer

Let me tell you a story…

Eugene’s single-wide trailer house, parked on the outskirts of town wasn’t much to look at. But it was the best he could afford with his meager wages. His ratting 1969 Ford Galaxy that he bought with 235,000 miles on the odometer sat in the dirt driveway beside the weathered porch.

He married his high school sweetheart two months after graduation. Baby Sarah burst into the world 10 ½ months later. Eugene’s heart swelled as big as a ripe watermelon in summer at the sight of his daughter’s contagious … Read the rest »

Confronting Your Fears With a New Boldness

Make Everyday a Fearless One

Almost daily, I will receive emails from friends, fellow coaches or business owners writing about how they want to move forward with a new project or business but they are “just too afraid”.  “Just too afraid” does that describe you?

One of my favorite coaches, Barbara Sher, describes fear as the “gatekeeper of our comfort zones.”  Fear becomes a sign to our inner being that we are getting ready to try something new or take an unknown risk.  So, if you start to feel afraid, you could actually be doing something very right.

Most of us are familiar … Read the rest »
