How to Live Your Dream When You’re Scared to Death.

What really scares you? An angry boss? A lost client? A problem without a solution? Zombies?

Without A Doubt, The Money Is Still Out There.

"Business is never so healthy as when, like a chicken, it must do a certain amount of scratching around for what it gets." - Henry Ford I still get people today moaning about how it's bad 'out there'.

Years ago, I came upon one of the most simple and powerful quotes I’ve ever read. It’s from Mohandas Gandhi, who in his 78 years of life, gave us so many great quotes (and his actions too!).

“Action Expresses Priorities.”

That’s it. That’s MY secret to getting things done.

Think about it — All of your actions, […]

Who Else Wants To Add Power & Purpose To Their Life?

Ever see the last scene from The Bourne Supremacy? Here it is (start the clip at 1:25 in).

In addition to the great soundtrack cut from Moby, you see Bourne walking off into the crowds of Manhattan.

Do you notice HOW he walks? […]

Stop Being Scared On The Job.

Are you complacent, gun-shy, or just plain scared?

Are You Prepared?

Right now, the east coast is bracing for Hurricane Irene to hit. It might be bad. It might be nothing. But it's smart to prepare. How does this apply to your career or business?

Why is it when we're surveyed, meetings rank at the bottom of any business experience? Because most people don't know how to run them. So here are 5 simple tips to make your meetings run efficiently:
