Half-Empty, Half-Full?

For the last two years, my brother has been going through a nasty separation/divorce process. It has been harrowing for two reasons: he is the first person to have gone through anything like this and he also is the first person who had a judge order a 50/50 split of matrimonial possessions between him and …

Everything is Connected

I had an epiphany of sorts about how so much is connected and want to share the highlights with you. Before I begin, let me ask you one question. If your life were a tree, what fruit would it bear? Autumn is now here, and most of the harvesting from most of the trees is …

Take a Stand!

I want to encourage you to take a stand!  To climb onto your soapbox! Huh?  Let me show you how it makes you stand up and stand apart from all your competition. Remember a couple of years ago, when we were in the middle of the election season? Well, one sunny day, an older gentleman …

Wealth Blind Spots. You? YUP!

  Did you know there are four wealth blind spots that most business people have? As a matter of fact, the only people who DON’T have these blind spots are the mega-millionaires and billionaires.
