I have long been a proponent of creating a functional education for young students as opposed to cramming unnecessary skills down their throats. The vast majority of adults in their jobs do not need or use higher skills in any of the educational subjects.
And, guess what?
If they needed to, they can learn them as needed. It's what people do when the need arises.
Sure, teach those classes to the kids that need or want them for future careers or even out of curiosity, but…Continue
When considering a specific career or profession—whether it’s your first one or your next one—the issue of education and training is a necessary consideration. Not so much for entrepreneurs and artists, but for millions of other people who are more bent for the "traditional" workforce. And there are four important components to factor into that decision: Applicability, Accreditation, Affordability and Aid. It doesn’t really matter in which order these are explored, as long as they are part…Continue
Would you rather spend $30,000 or earn that much or more? Unless you work for the federal government, you'd choose the latter. Most entrepreneurs I know are very resourceful because they don't make dangerous assumptions about money they haven't yet earned. So, when I pose this question to potential coaching clients, the answer is usually preceded with a sarcastic chuckle.

I have the opportunity to talk to a lot of people who have written or want to write books. It is interesting that 80% of the people surveyed say they want to write a book, yet 80% of those people never start. Of those who actually do write books, they often experience very underwhelming results.…Continue
"Ten percent are great leaders; 80% are followers; 10% are bad leaders." So says Tim Lautzenheiser, affectionately called Dr. Tim by the music community. Dr. Tim founded Attitude Concepts for Today, an organization dedicated to developing student leadership in music ensembles.
He is the top name in music education, delivering keynotes and workshops across the country. I was privileged to interview him for my podcast, …Continue

What is more risky? To pursue something you love that you have a talent for, or take the safe job that you feel no connection to and hope doesn’t drive you to despair? Putting on a false face everyday, pretending that you care, going through the motions, hoping you meet the productivity benchmarks. Certainly this is the case in many workplaces. We have workplaces full of people working at only 25 to 30 percent of their true capacity. I believe that the only way to do your best, most…Continue

I talk with quite a number of people who want to make a career change but don't have the educational requirements an…Continue
The Charmed Life. What kind of life would you live if money was of "no object," time wasn't a concern, and you had no educational barrier? What does YOUR charmed life look like to you? This is the question we ALL ought to answer for ourselves, the question that seems very critical to answer, if we are ever to figure out what we truly want to pour our time into. I still think of it as, "What do I want to be when I grow up?" :-) This is not been an easy task. For me, there are days when…Continue
I made a decision with my friend to start a podcast. After feeling left behind when I was not accepted into a certain program I was hoping to, I felt so down. Actually, I was angry. I never get…Continue
I have been working with nonprofit organizations for many years successfully increasing sponsorship partnerships on a regular basis. Because of my success I have chosen to share my secrets with nonprofit organizations and entrepreneurs. Since we launched this program in September 2013, we have helped organizations bring in over $1,000,000 in sponsorships dollars!
Our community is growing and I want you to be a part of it. My…

Yes, I am still here. I've just been busy working on a few fun and exciting projects that are intended to enrich lives. As matter of fact, I've started a company called Impactful Living, Inc. as a result of it all.
Curious about the projects? Here is what is…Continue
Ok, so I know I'm not very active here. Quite honestly I am very busy living, and growing my business, but I felt like this was too exciting to not share.
The last 3 1/2 years has seen me spending increasing amounts of time teaching music to kindergarten and first grade students at Lakeview Elementary in Lakeside, CA. It started out so humbly and innocently as an offer to help a pre-K class with music. Our twins were enrolled there for this semester long class they called "Early…Continue
Anyone that spend much time with me these days is well aware of my disappointment in our schools. This brilliant video sums it up very well from a student’s perspective. It also sums up my biggest challenge a parent.
I want kids to be freed from the box for which our outdated school system has built. How will…Continue

Some days I get to work in the morning, and I can not concentrate for the life of me. I'm an elementary school teacher, so focus is pretty important if I want to keep my sanity.
But, the thing is that I don't want to continue being an elementary school teacher. I've tossed some ideas around in the past about how to maneuver out of the classroom, and into a "specials" teacher job, such as a library media specialist, or a technology integration specialist. But, really, I don't want…Continue
