Most of you know by now that I’m a huge advocate of using cash only when it comes to financing your lifestyle. Of course, that means using the green stuff or a debit card. I prefer using a cash envelope system for spending money throughout…Continue
Have you ever made any bad financial decisions? I know I have. If you’ve been an adult for any length of time, you probably have too.
Welcome to the club.
Lest you think I’m somehow above making bad financial decisions just because I teach people about personal…Continue
Stuck. Intimidated. Shy. Inferior. Unskilled..... These are words I've used to describe myself in the last few weeks. Lies all of them, but lies I was willing to believe in the months following the completion of a project. I thought I wanted to take it easy for a few months.... but as it turns out, that is not my nature. Where are my new clients?!
For my entire working life I've been blessed to do what I want in places others have thought to be barren. Business and HR…Continue
You avoid giving your children wildly colored, processed foods because you don’t want them affected by the food dyes those foods obviously contain. However, it may surprise you that many foods and beverages you would never think contain these chemical toxins, most of which are specifically marketed to children,…Continue
How many times have you said to yourself, “if I could just make more money, I’d never have to worry about finances again”, or “if I had x amount of dollars, all my financial problems would be solved for good”.
Debt consolidation is a big business in the U.S., and many people believe it’s a great tool to use to get out of debt. But is debt consolidation really a good option for people that are deep in debt and need …Continue

If you have any experience with gardening you will easily be able to relate to this analogy. Having a vegetable garden this year, I am learning a lot about how to nourish the plants I want to grow and how insidious weeds are! They threaten to take over my garden whether I water them or not. And the longer I let them…Continue
When I wake up in the mornings, time is already moving, in fact it was moving all night long. The only thing that I can do is to get up and move with it. You hear a lot of talk about managing time, and not to look down on the topic, I just want to talk about it in a different light. Time management seminars, classes and practices are very beneficial. How many people would come to a “Me Management Seminar” or “Me Management Class?” In reality, at the end of the day (or beginning hopefully) we…Continue
Here I thought I was going to shatter the world with a unique concept to help explain a strange phenomenon. I woke up this morning with the thought of why we don’t achieve success. Why are we afraid of accomplishing goals and bettering ourselves? The term “negative success” popped into my mind. I was excited and thought that I had just created a new way of looking at human behavior.
Ah, the power of Google…I just Googled “negative success” and it turns out a couple of Ph.D.’s…Continue

Personal accountability is one of the biggest missing behaviors in our world. What ever happened to just doing things for the sake of just doing them, and taking ownership rather than always pointing the finger towards someone or something else?
This is why true leadership is rare, but not that hard to find because they stand out like glowing light bulbs in a crowd. A lot of times you’ll even find the leaders in employee roles versus the managerial roles, while the managers…Continue

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about responsibility. When we're kids, we don't have much of it. As we mature and start gaining some, it's pretty tricky to handle at first and we may fumble it a lot. But eventually, we get a little better at being responsible as the consequences for being irresponsible become more painful.
But no matter how responsible you are, there may still be areas of your life in which you've never learned how to be very responsible. In fact, you may…Continue
Did you know that your reality has more to do with how you perceive life than most people care to think? We’re on auto-pilot, coasting, drifting, and just moving with life. We’re not deciding anything, but reacting to everything. Why is that?
Perhaps drifting is just so much easier to do. Well, easy doesn’t always get the cake. When we react, we’re holding pre-conceived notions about what our world is like. We’re not dreaming of the future, we’re living and reacting to…Continue

If you want your life to settle down, you're going to need to make sure your thoughts do too. If you're constantly thinking about getting revenge, or you're always focused on how angry you are, you're only going to get more chaos as a result.
Meaningful change often happens slowly and with much effort. If you're trying to make your life better, focus on starting new habits and making your new and improved life and habits a routine that you can depend on. You'll…Continue

If you could see your life from a great distance, I'm guessing it would look a lot like an ant colony with people running around here and there in long lines of activity going in every direction. Sometimes we get almost too busy to be happy. And if this goes on for too long, we can even forget what used to make us happy. We can get so disconnected from happiness that we find ourselves desperately looking for ways to start getting happy again. And who doesn't want to be happier?…Continue

Discipline. It's a word that can send shivers up your spine. But I am convinced, now more than ever, that discipline, in the form of being organized and on top of all of your responsibilities and commitments, is probably one of the greatest ways to improve yourself...EVER!
Well, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I have struggled to be more disciplined for much of my adult life. Some of you may be aware that I have a blog called…Continue
