Stop Waiting For The Storm To Pass

I love quotes… I saw one the other day that I saved and haven’t stopped thinking about. It said… “Life isn’t about waiting for the Storm to Pass… It’s about learning to Dance in the Rain!” How many times have you found yourself waiting for something before you take the next step? We’ve all done…

Keep A-Goin’!

I was talking to a friend of mine this morning and she told me about a poem her mom used to recite to her. It was called “Keep A-Goin’!” by Frank Lebby Stanton (1857-1927). When she read it to me, I immediately knew it was the topic for this week. Does it seem like a…

Eight And A Half Years! WOW!!

She was mad and frustrated. She sat in the very back of the room for the entire 3-day event… with her arms crossed and with her eyebrows furrowed in anger and disbelief. She said, “If you can help me make $5,000 a month and get out of debt, I want you to be my coach.”…

There are just a few days left in the year and I hope you’re not slaving over work, stressing to get those last few things done. And I hope you aren’t spending hours planning for 2024… if you’re doing that now, you’re probably already behind where you wanted to be for the new year. Many…

Are You Attracting Or Repelling Clients?

I spent the holiday weekend at the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, NC last weekend. So many amazing things about the visit and the property as a whole. As always, I found business lessons in many places… I’ll tell you about that next week. What’s interesting is how one thing can taint an entire experience. I…

Veteran or Not…

Veteran’s Day is coming up here in the US. It’s a day when we honor all those who have served our country by serving in the military. I was never in the military (I know you might find that hard to believe… lol). My dad served during the Korean War. He was in the Army….
