One of our worst traits can be perfectionism. Stymied by our desire to make sure that everything is perfect before doing something, the we are in danger of never moving forward because we don’t ACT.
I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time online. ðŸ˜‰ In addition to time spent on my laptop and desktop, mobile apps, and Instagram, my facebook timeline, twitterfeeds and emails stream directly to my smartphone. I literally spend my entire day with thousands of your voices echoing in my stream of consciousness all day long.

My Apple Watch arrived a couple of weeks ago, and so far, it’s been a wonderful tool for reminders, notifications, and fitness tracking. (Thanks for reminding me that I’ve been parked at my desk for 2 hours!)
Unexpectedly, it’s also helping me enjoy more podcasts, via the Overcast app. (The Apple Watch doesn’t currently support the native iPhone Podcast app, for some reason).
Podcasting is experiencing a resurgence over the last few years, having originated in the 1980’s and dropped (mostly) from the public eye in the 1990’s. I always dabbled in podcast listening, but never really paid attention Read More…

Can you say with certainty that you have a bunch of happy employees? What if it is just a few?
Whether the numbers are high, medium or low, happy employees make for a world of difference in the business world.
For those individuals running large companies, there is sometimes a disconnect with the workers. This may not be due to an unpleasant owner, but more so because there are so many employees for one to keep track of.

Sometimes it can feel like you’re banging your head against an immovable wall when you’re trying to grow your business. It can be totally frustrating and stressful to find new ways to serve more clients.

It was drizzly. An evening networking event at an outdoor location. It would have been so easy to skip it, give a lame excuse the next day, and move on.
But I went anyway.
After using my drink ticket and strafing the buffet of appetizers, I found myself searching the room for someone to talk to.
Group of seven people, laughing a little too hard in the corner? No. Intense duo exchanging business cards near the bar? No. Dude looking around like the Terminator, scanning for prospects over the shoulders of his group? No way.
And then I saw him. Read More…
