The Transitioning Military Members Fire Triangle

In military-to-civilan transition workshops military members are advised that they have three options, to live where they want, make the money they want, or get the type of job they want. Dan Miller, author of the terrific career book "48 Days to the Work You Love" would say he'd want AND solutions, not OR alternatives. As a military retiree, many have the advantage of being able to accept a broader salary base and still meet their needs. This frees them to narrow their search to where they… Continue

3 Ways to Build Rapport in Under 5 Minutes

She called 911 because she could not breathe very well.  She knew she needed help.  As we walked through the door, I could tell she needed to go to the hospital where she would spend several days getting better.  After getting her a much needed breathing treatment, IV and meds, it was time to get her loaded up and get going.  However, she had not left her house in over 5 years.  Things just became very interesting.…

National Work Like a Dog Day!

Today is a day to show appreciation for those who carry more than their load, and work like a dog. You can also honor them by working like a dog today.

Why do dogs have such a great life? They are totally customer focused!

If you could pay attention to others the way your dog pays attention to you, the person you are listening to would walk away feeling like a genius. Dogs listen deeply even when they don't understand.…

Can I Coast Now?

Recently I was speaking to a friend and we were discussing life's struggles. This man is in his late 60's and was a pretty prominent doctor in Salt Lake. I have known of a few of his recent health struggles and he enlightened me further.

He said that when he was young, he thought that when he got into college that he would feel at ease. Then he decided to go to medical school and when he knew which school accepted him, then he hoped that he would feel at ease. Then he said that when…

When One Door Closes another Door Opens

How frustrating is it when an unexpected turn of events disrupts the daily flow of life? If you said very frustrating don’t feel bad because it is how many folks would have responded as well.

Can a car dealer use Social Media

On July 18th's podcast, Dan responded to the question: "A friend recently opened up a small car dealer and he wants me to help him promote it using social media – I would be paid commission only."

New Creativity Course – Feedback Wanted

Greetings from NY,

I am writing an online creativity course and plan to start video taping soon.  I am 90% complete with the content of this course which I’ve been working on for several months.  The course is a series of videos  of me teaching about creativity and its many “languages.”  My perspective on creativity is probably different from many because I am not artistic.  I am more of an analytical-minded person with a bent toward science.  In this course there…
