We are all born with self confidence, but we lose some of it along the way. Positive thinking changes into negative thinking and we cease to be confident. Much of it depends on our state of mind. It is all within ourselves and we need to decide how well we should live our life. Negative thoughts and…Continue

I was shopping with Ashley when she was about ten years old and we passed a karaoke event going on in the center of the mall. I wasn’t much interested but Ashley was curious so we paused and watched for a few moments. The emcee for this event announced that anyone who would sing into the microphone would receive two free tickets to a family play at the prestigious Tennessee Performing Arts Center in downtown Nashville. Ashley said, “Do it, Mommy! Do it!” I replied, “Not in…Continue

Is this happening with you? This year I had three companies who did not send me 1099’s. This week I contacted all three. They all got back to me very quickly. Two of them are sending me the 1099’s so I can include the forms when I file. However, the third company while acknowledging that they paid me, is refusing to issue me a 1099. Fortunately I got that in an email so I can include that correspondence when I file. Even after…Continue

Several years ago, when I was working in the schools, I stopped by a friend's classroom at the end of the day to catch up. As we were chatting, he was moving around the room cleaning up. At one point, he stopped, picked up a spoon and…Continue

You’ve no doubt heard it said that, in life, timing is everything. It could well be what is limiting the effectiveness of the exercise you do to help you reach your weight loss goals. What you eat is important and research also shows that …Continue

In 1996, I left the Army band and started a career as a self employed musician. I failed at the booking. I sought out a coach, implemented what he taught me and went from 20-30 gigs a year to 125+. I actually had to stop using my system for awhile because I was booked a year out!
I made many other mistakes, including not pricing myself right even after I got the 125+ gigs. In this 1.5 day workshop, I'd like to teach you what I learned so you can get more gigs and make more money as a…Continue

The young wife sat across from my desk and said, "I don't enjoy being married to my husband any more. I am not happy."
The college student confided with me, "I don't like where I am going to school. If I changed, I think I would be happy."
The elderly man said, "If my kids and grandkids just came to see me more often, then I would be happy."
"When I retire ... then I will be happy."
"When the kids get out of diapers ... "
"When I get my…Continue
Why Seek Change
Change is happening all around us. How we deal with change is a choice. Recognizing that we must embrace change in order to evolve and transform helps us to create our best lives.
I wasn’t always comfortable with change. For years, I was filled with fear and resistance to the idea…Continue
There are a lot of days when I don’t want to look at ANY numbers –
Do you have days like that? Hearing John Maxwell talk about the Rule of Five made me think about one number differently. His five changed my perspective, in fact, changed how I approach the day. I might not want to face any of the above…Continue
I always encourage my clients to work with me to create a personalized meal plan that works well for them. It does no good to follow a “diet.” There are thousands of diets and they all work some of the time for some people! There is absolutely no guarantee that any one particular diet will work well for you.…Continue

Overnight stays at the hospital can be boring, tedious, and stressful. You are stuck in a sterile looking room with only a TV for entertainment and almost nowhere to go. People are constantly coming and going, machines are beeping, and the extra mattress you get to sleep on is hard as a rock and three sizes too small. I once spent the night on a mattress that wasn’t even as wide as my shoulders. The hospital staff and the hospital is there to serve the patient, not the caregiver and this…Continue

This is an empowering concept. The future we will live is ours to…Continue
For the past few weeks, I have been feeling less than great. I’d awaken with everything from headaches to nosebleeds. ( sorry may be TMI here). I tried whatever over the counter and natural remedies I could. I would feel better for a day or two and then it would start all over again.For weeks, I really just felt “blah”.Finally I caved and made an appointment with a doctor who diagnosed a severe bacterial sinus infection and ended up prescribing just what made me feel better nearly…Continue
