Show 038 Finding your Voice - "I've been avoiding myself."

As her paycheck grew bigger, so also did the hole in her soul.

And while she originally thought that a healthy boost to her bottom line would elevate the joy and happiness she most sought, (comparing her office to a prison cell), it had the opposite effect; dampening her spirits and lowering her enthusiasm.

Hello old friend.....

I was driving home and had a thought. I hadn't seen my friend Jo Ann in almost a year. We live about 12 mins. apart. Why hadn't I seen her in a year? The last time I saw her was the day of her mother's funeral last August. Jo Ann and I grew up living across the street from each other. She is not a morning person. I always call her after 12 noon. I call her more than she calls me. It's always been like that, but just one…

Why the top few carry the success of a company

Ever wonder why the same two percent of a sales team keep hitting and surpassing their production target in a company. Isn,t it strange how a person can build a company from just an idea, make it become successful , sells it then start the process over again with a new…

The very essence of leadership is its purpose.

“The very essence of leadership is its purpose. And the purpose of leadership is to accomplish a task. That is what leadership does–and what it does is more important than what it is or how it works.” 


The task is freedom from financial worries and owning our time.  A leader never shows doubt, worry or fear.  A leader always shows single-minded focus for the task at…

How to get a girlfriend

I’m guessing when I look at my numbers to see how many people have looked at this blog post I’ll see a super spike in numbers, and I’m guessing it’s because of the title.


I have to be honest, I just tricked you! (HA HA) This post is about why you would buy my book; I fooled you (sorry, but not really). I just want to give you a few reasons why you would want to buy my book and then it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth the…

Cruel and unusual employment...

I recently saw a young man wearing a shirt with the following slogan. "I suffer from cruel and unusual employment."  I was itching to start a conversation with him, but that chance did not materialize. I thought of several things when I saw that shirt. Here are some of them...and yes a few are obvious.

Teams share the burden and divide the grief

“Teams share the burden and divide the grief.”


As a team we share in our successes and we lift each other up in times of strife.  When aligned as a unit with a common goal, the team is stronger than sum of its parts.


Challenge for today:

Schedule a meeting or conference call with your leaders or entire team.  Celebrate and recognize the…

     I consider myself one of the extremely lucky. Im lucky because I have an adoring wife who loves me. I have two incredible kiddos who are going to grow up to be something wonderful, even if it's just to be a daddy. I feel lucky because even though I'm by no means rich, all my bills are paid and I've got toys to play with. Most of all though, I feel extremely lucky cause Im probably one of the few people who has actually heard GOD speak. Now I know, I know. If your an athiest reading this…

We are not the target

I was inspired to write this after reading and commenting on a great post by Doug Renz,What I learned while tuning pianos for a living-no flat notes-Part 2.


I enjoyed his refreshing commitment to customer service (well, refreshing as opposed to lack of commitment in the regular mainstream business community), and it got me to thinking about what…

Because I said so....

Recently, I was talking to one of my friends after church. She mentioned that her grandson still was not excelling. He's disorganized and lazy....was basically what she told me. I had heard it before. She went on to tell me that his father has him involved in sports and he does "much better when his father is not at the games." I don't even know what sport he plays, but she went on to say the son is playing these sports…

48 ways to overcome your fears

Earlier today, Jerry Schotz posted about his 48 fears. Rather than hijack his post, I thought I'd respond with a post of my own. I hope it helps, Jerry. :-)


  1. If I do it on my own, what if I fail?

    The only real failure is in giving up.

  2. Will I be capable of caring for my family?

    Ask yourself what provisions you can make to ensure that your family can…

48 fears to the work you love...

Alright, this whole 48 days to the work you love has got me motivated, but horribly afraid.  As a man who has always had a regular paycheck (military and public), this entrepreneurial stuff in my mid 40's is tough. I know Dan has addressed (and readdressed) many of these items, however they are real for many of us even after seeing or hearing the success stories of others.

  1. If I do it on my own, what if I…

Throw that Pendulum… Just Because

Have you ever done something “just because”? Some people have trouble with this one, but it’s an excellent way to expand your horizon. It’s how we discover life and what all it has to offer.


Now I know the idea is to first understand what we can’t change about ourselves, by knowing what’s deeply…

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.” 



Perseverance is our ally against failure.  It is a critical part of not only our long-term success, but our short-term, daily success, as well.


Challenge for today:

Focus on each objective on your daily to-do list separately today.  Persevere by completing each…

Wait on God or Take Action?

I’ve got several Christian friends. I’m a Christian as well.

One of the things I hear often is ‘I want to pray about this before I make a decision’.

Hey…I’m all for that. Seeking God helps me to get things in the right perspective. It reminds me that He’s with me…I’m not in charge of the world.

But…some of these friends pray, then never make a decision. They just…

Keep growing

My daughter is in the military. She's been enlisted for three years. She recently admitted that she's growing personally. I can tell. A lot of things in her life have changed. 


By nature she's fun loving and the life of the party. However, in the military there are rules..and then there are rules. In order to grow you have to…

The "Magical" Bachelor's degree

The other day, I spoke with a co-worker of mine and we had a conversation about a few things including her plan for her future. She's 48 years old and has raised two children by herself and now feels it is time to focus on herself.


Her plan is to go back to school soon…
