Emotionally Letting Go : Seven Ideas to Help You Get Rid of Stuff After a Death

The subject of letting go of your dead spouse’s belongings has come up a few times in the last couple of weeks.  When someone dies they leave behind all of their stuff, their belongings, their things.  Honestly, most of this stuff just clutters up the house of the spouse who is still alive.  After Kara died I really had no use for her clothes, I didn’t need two cars anymore, and those girly knick-knacks didn’t fit in my new “bachelor pad”.  While these things are just stuff, they are a…

Sitters of Porches

There is a quality that comes with being Southern that can only be understood if you live here. What seems strange to the rest of the world carries here a feeling of warm-heartedness and familiarity that I value deep in my soul. There is one place that has always seemed to be the incubator of Southern spirit. Whether it be the start of a song, the concocting of a tale or shelling of a pea, the front porch of the Southern home has always been a sanctuary. Here is my ode to those who have… Continue

Doubles - A Fun Icebreaker

This is one of my favorite icebreakers that I have use to get the energy up of any group. The goal is simple. Have each person roll the dice. If they get a double then they start writing 1-100 on a sheet of paper. The first person to 100 WINS!


Don’t let the simplicity fool you. Groups really get into this activity because it gets competitive very quickly.I give credit for this activity…

Bad Policies Destroy Civilization.

The smoke and mirrors used by the ego-driven interpreters and the ego-driven interventionists to drive civilization further along the road to serfdom will cause the highly sought-after possibility of peace and prosperity to go up in smoke.

Why the smoke and mirrors? To hide the conflagration that is burning away the property rights/human rights of the people of the world. The statists want to hide the destructive fires of their wars and counterfeiting and want to…

Repurpose Your Content with Online Courses

Repurposing is a big deal. From barn wood to burlap, people are looking for creative ways to repurpose everyday items. One of the best ways to grow your income is through courses your create when you repurpose your intellectual property. I've spent the better part of the past 20+ years creating engaging, effective educational tools and products from content that belongs to other people. I've worked with content by Billy…

Are You Serious?

My son is rambling about the house trying to pack and one minor calamity after another is happening. A stubbed toe, a dropped item and after each incident, I hear the same quote, "Are you serious?" We've all been there. There are days where it just seems like things are not going your way and in the midst of it, we find ourselves asking some unknown invisible person, "Are you serious?"

But of course there's another application to the quote. We look at something someone has done and we…

4 Ways to "C" You Through Your Next Challenge

"Even if he fails again and again to accomplish his purpose (as he necessarily must until weakness is overcome), the strength of character gained will be the measure of his true success and this will form a new starting point for future power and triumph." - James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

When challenges come your way, what do you "c"?   Do you see an impassable boulder in your way or a chance to open your mind and strengthen your…

This once piece of advice from my mastermind coach led to $1500 in sales

I did the mastermind thing.

It took me a while. Like you, I'd heard a lot about the benefits of mastermind groups. I knew a lot of very successful people had used the concept to develop ideas, focus their efforts, and produce great results. It makes sense. When individuals come together with a shared goal to help encourage and motivate each other, good things happen. 

And it's…

Fear Big!

Aren’t we supposed to Dream Big?

Most of the time you hear people telling you to dream big! I have been one of those people perpetuating this mantra. There isn’t anything inherently wrong with it, but I fear too many people stay in the dream portion of this saying. We can sit there and day dream or dream at night about all the amazing things we are going to do. I fall into this trap.

I have been…

Just be honest now

You won’t meet a tougher bunch of people than small business owners (SBOs), will you? But on the other side of that tough line are people who are just as passionate about what they want in life and how they want to live it. An altogether softer side fed by a desire to make a difference in the world and positively influence those who are important to them.

It’s common for SBOs to want to be seen as strong and in control, and the desire to make a positive difference may seem too soft to…

What Would You Do if Your Employer Closed Their Doors Forever?

A local Fujifilm plant in Dayton TN is shuttering its doors and shifting production to other plants. You can reference an article about it HERE. As I read the article I could see the writing on the wall regarding this event. I'm not talking about a sudden thing either. I'm talking about a decades long build up to this event.…

I am Failing at Keeping Memories Alive

watched the new version of Roots this weekend. I haven’t seen the original; I was six so I can plead innocence for not watching it when it first came out.  When I first started watching it, and throughout most of the series, I thought I was watching a movie about one families struggles with slavery.  At the very end of the movie I came to understand that it was a movie about one family working hard to hang on to traditions and the…
