See And/Or Believe…

A few days ago, I saw a commercial with Dawn Staley (in case you don’t know… she’s the current University of South Carolina Women’s Basketball coach, former college, WNBA and Olympic basketball player) in it where she was talking about a program called “See Her”. It’s a campaign about how far women’s sports have come…

Halfway There…

In just a few days, we’ll officially be halfway through this year. This is a great time to take some time to really reflect on where you are and what you want to accomplish for the rest of the year. This applies to all areas of your business…  and your life. Are you halfway to…

Do You Need More Qualified Leads?

In my 30+ years in business, I don’t think I’ve ever talked to a business owner who, at some point, didn’t talk about needing more clients and leads.

When somebody asks you if you’re alright, or says “how are you doing” do you automatically, without thinking tell them you’re good, or ok? “How’s business?” You reply, “it’s good (or great).” “How are you doing?” You say, “I’m good, how about you?” “Are you ok?” You respond, “Yea, I’m good.” Or “I’m fine.” Sound…

Agree or Disagree? I saw this posted several times on social media in the last week or so and every time, people jump on the bandwagon of agreeing with this statement. Except me… My response was if you really feel that way, you’re doing something wrong! Very wrong… My guess is most of the people…

Overcoming The Odds

It’s college softball tournament time and last weekend was the first round of regionals. Friday evening I tuned in to watch my alma mater, the University of Missouri (Mizzou), play their first game. They were ranked #7 and should have easily beaten Omaha – who was unranked. Well, they play the games for a reason……

What Do You Prioritize?

I was at the gym this morning – I’m not usually a morning exerciser, I prefer to go in the afternoon, and before the after-work crowd. I was between sets on the bench press when it hit me that I had prioritized my health this morning.  I’m teaching a class today at 4pm and because…

Big Rocks

You may have seen the video of the professor putting rocks in a jar and asking his students if the jar is full. Most think it is, until he adds gravel and asks again. He then adds sand in the spaces all the way to the top of the jar. Again, asking if the jar…

Your Doubt

I saw this quote the other day and I can’t stop thinking about it so I wanted to share it with you… “Doubt Your Doubts Before You Doubt Your Potential” ~ Dr. Cory Frogley So many of us doubt ourselves. All of us do at one time or another. It’s human nature. Doubt is especially…
