Drop down menus?

I'm looking for a way to create a drop down menu so that if someone scrolls over one of the headings on my page navigator bar at the top of my site, a drop dow of options will be shown.  Who knows how to do this?See More

Custom code needed?

I've had numerous people suggest I add color to my site and I'm trying to figure out how to do a couple of things.First I'd like to add color to the widget boxes in my right sidebar.  How do I figure out what code I need to change  to get the colors I want? I have a widget that says get the free stuff.  It's a text box and I'd like to make it look like a button or something with a link to my resources page.  How can I do that?I'm using 20-10 theme and the site is…See More

The Best Advice I Ever Got. You Need it Too!

Posted on August 16, 2011 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

 

Ken Braswell where are you now?  Ken was a boss of mine years ago when I was a young district manager for a retail company.  Ken was a leader and mentor to me in more ways than I can count, but the best piece of advice he ever gave me was so simple.  So simple in fact that it would have been easy to disregard.  Coming from anyone except Ken, I might have ignored it.  His advice? "Don't forget to smile."  That single piece of advice from someone that I felt cared about me has made a…

The voices in your head are liars!

I have discovered that for most people, the biggest obstacle to success is their own lack of confidence.  I think this is particularly true when we are about to begin a new venture.  Assuming you have done your due diligence, have the skills and stamina to complete your mission and have a clear picture in your mind of the desired outcome, there in no reason not to launch! 

The voices in your head are…

My Story

Posted on August 10, 2011 at 1:03pm 0 Comments

There is a real tendency by "experts" to spin their lives into one great success story.  My story is a little different.  I wish I could tell you that my career has been one of planned excellence but the truth is I have found my passion a little at a time. 

After getting out of the Army in 1976 there were no jobs in my home state of Michigan.  My wife and I decided to come to her home state of Kentucky and give things a try.  I started college on the G.I. Bill and shortly there after…

The setting of goals is one of the most under utilized life management tool that I've ever seen.  Research has shown that people who set written goals with a timeline achieve more success than those who never set goals.  Goal setters make more money, go farther in their careers, achieve more for their charitable work, and have more quality personal time.  People who set goals, work towards them and see successes are more happy.  The great philosopher Yogi Berra observed:…

PS Also, in case you're interested, I offer a free e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! to those who join the REAL Success E-Zine community (also free). I think you'll get a ton out of both resources.

Hi Mike,
Welcome to 48days. This website has been a valuable resource for me to help clarify my goals, learn, and meet new people. I hope it does the same for you.

If you are interested in blogging I have a 30 blogs in 30 days challenge for November. The goal is to generate drafts of future blogs, learn more about blogging along the way, and clarify blogging goals. I know it's short notice. If you are up for it, I'd love to have you join (http://www.48days.net/group/30blogs30days).

Currently, I'm building a blog that will help homeschool families build flexible businesses and utilize travel to teach.

Have a great day,
Brandy

Hello Mike,

One other thing…I want to offer you a gift. You can download my FREE e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! by joining the REAL Success E-Zine community at www.liveitforward.com.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
