Group Leader
Start local, then go global

So I’ve just launched my blog and podcast here at socialchangenation.com – and I had huge ambitions of immediately venturing out and interviewing all kinds of social entrepreneurs from all over the world.  Fortunately, I’m plugged into these networks, so I was quickly able to fire off a set of emails to some pretty high charging social entrepreneurs.  The response was universal, and pretty much went like this: “love what you’re doing, but need to see a following and more of a website before…

Inflation Series - Inflation Is A Hidden Tax.

Inflation: Artificial expansion of the money supply.

Because of the way inflation is used to redistribute wealth towards those who have politically-favored connections (to the counterfeiting operation) this hidden tax is extremely regressive. It penalizes the poor (those who have none of the political connections enjoyed by the well-connected) to a much greater extent than the rich because the rich are more connecteddirectly…

Let's try this again

Well after a few years of being absent I’m back. When I first became a member of this community I was dealing with severe depression and realized that it was drastically impacting my ability to make any type of decision. I’m also full blown ADHD and dyslexic. Full blown as my therapist put it….I’m thinking that means I have the concentration skills of a Spider monkey on crack! My depression has become much more manageable and I had to learn how to tell the difference between when…

What makes a memory? Hint, it's not about the money-

    In a recent book I read the author suggested thinking about all your Christmas gifts since childhood. How many could you remember? Probably a handful at best. Now think of experiences you enjoyed, any better luck recalling a few of those?

    For me I reflect back on many nature walks my 2 sons took while growing up. The three of us accompanied by our dog always, and sometimes my wife, their mom. We'd always take snacks, and be gone for hours. There was an abandoned railroad…

Science of Mommy Sabbatical

I was up way too late last night. Working on the budget; woohoo.

Then the sweet, melodic, squawling voice of my oh-so-precious toddler woke me early this morning. Apparently his sister wasn’t making Aragorn the Lego-man say the right…

What Are Your Kids Learning From You?

I am living a blessed life.  A result, in part, of learning from my Father.
My Dad taught me a lot of important lessons by example.  He was a hard worker.  He was sent off to military school as a tween, then did a tour in the Marines, followed by cooking and managing in restaurants from the Ozark mountains to Washington D.C.  He often took second jobs in construction to make ends meet, and to pay finance payments on campers and boats, as well as fishing and hunting gear with…

Want Results as a Leader? Respond, Don't React!

In my professional life, this week, I had to deal with conflict.  Has anyone other leader had to deal with conflict in the workplace in their career?  If you answered no, please let me know where you work, and tell me if there are any openings!
Today on my "3Rs of Success" blog I will address the 3Rs of Conflict Resolution.
Dealing with conflict on the team is one of the biggest drains on my energy and enthusiasm as a leader.  Yet, if addressed in a positive manner,…

You don’t work in the non-profit field – you’re in the ‘for purpose’ field.

I made a mistake, and Adam Braun of Pencils of Promise called me on it…

If you haven’t heard of Adam, you have to.  His boo k(pencilsofpromise.com): is the single greatest book I’ve ever read.  It is the first book that literally moved me to tears with its inspirational story.  In short, Adam was a hard charging finance guy who threw it all in to start a ‘non-profit’ to found schools around the world.  The book comes complete with 30 mantras for changing the world.  The mantras…

#036: The Power of Goals and Strategic Planning [Podcast]

Goals and planning Every one of us are wired to dream and to have vision. Without VISION (some idea where you are going), we literally begin to die or perish. There is this idea that ‘if you don’t aim at some target, you are sure to hit it. In other words, if there is not a visually and emotionally compelling focus or GOAL for which I am directing my energy, my heart, my mind,…

Are You Married?

August will mark my sixth wedding anniversary. My wife is a phenomenal blessing to me and I thank God for her. Let me add that I'm a slow learner but eventually I get it. The "get it" I'm talking about here is listening to my wife. And I'm sure that the get it that I think I got is not really done yet but I'll take the small steps of success any time.

I recently had an idea and my wife said "that fits your personality." I was stunned. I've been on a a business path alone for the past…

Inflation Series - Inflation Redistributes Wealth.

Inflation: Artificial expansion of the money supply.
When the money supply is artificially increased it has to be initiated by some entity; some legally-sanctioned or some illegal counterfeiting agency. If we assume it is an illegal counterfeiter then the first possessors of this new money have new wealth in terms of the goods and services received in exchange for pieces of paper not worth what they claim. The goods and services extracted decrease the wealth of the providers of…

How to Overcome Rejection

Part of the experience in a job search, building a business, sales, and applying to college is rejection. As much as we all wish that we would get a “Yes” with every request, it just doesn’t happen.

When you really wanted a job, a joint venture business deal, acceptance into a certain college, and you were declined, it can be tough to dust off your feet and keep…

Message in a Bottle...Any Like-Minded Introverts Out There?

I have a good feeling about this 48 Days crowd. But...I think it will annoy me a bit, at least at first.  You see, I am an EXTREME introvert. Before I go on, let me define my terms:

"Introvert" does not mean shy, or unsociable.  It simply means that my nervous system takes in lots of data. I process life internally. After spending time with friends, or at a conference, (I LOVE conferences,) my body vibrates and my…
