Tree T Pee: Two Types of Business Stories You Must Know

Over the past couple years I’ve watched a few episodes of ABC’s “Shark Tank” TV show. I’ve found it intriguing, but haven’t got into the show so much that I felt like I had to see every episode.

A few weeks ago when my wife and I were at home, a rerun of the show came on. She said, “Shark Tank is on,” and I said, “OK.”

I was sure glad that we watched this one all the way to the end.

Seeking Children's Story Authors - If you have a story, I have an audience!

I run a web site for kids called LightUpYourBrain.com. It's been around for quite a few years, and the most popular feature of the site is free MP3 downloads of audio stories for kids. As you might imagine, with the explosion in the number of mobile devices, interest in these stories just continues to grow. We currently offer about 25 stories on the site. Some are older public domain stories, but a growing number are from indie…

What is your story?

What is your story?

Your story or in other words, what you believe your authentic self to be transmits energy, perceived luck or fortune, worldview and other intangible attributes to the people around you.  That is why it is vital that you have both a realistic and positive story to tell not only the people you meet and deal with on a day-to-day basis, but also…

Don't Let Frustration Keep You From Finding Your Passion

At some point in the search for your passion you’re likely going to feel frustrated by the lack of progress you’re making.

One of the biggest frustrations is how slowly the process moves.

Can you hear me now? Are you listening...really listening?

“We are blessed with two ears and one mouth.  Perhaps we should consider listening twice as much as we speak.”—Anonymous-

A while back I was co-coaching with a mentor on "Life Skills for Personal Excellence".  The lesson for the week was "Listening-Responding" (as opposed to 'hearing - reacting' as many of us have been programmed to do).  I come from a large Italian-Irish family, not only to we tend to be the loud family…

It’s Going To Be A Good One…

I used to manage a horse farm. In fact, that is what I went to college for. They were always my passion. As a small girl growing up in Lancaster, PA, I dreamed a runaway horse and buggy would drive by and I would be the one to stop it and be able to keep the horse.

I don’t know where I thought the owner would be, but those small details don’t matter when you are dreaming.…

Quick 1, 2, 3, 4 on How to Make Chickens Tell Stories

I have a vision to run a 100 mile race one day. However, it would be impossible for me to do unless God showed up. I’ve ran a half marathon already, and my next most achievable goal is a full marathon this fall. I know I have that one down, but it will be a stretch. After I accomplish that, I’ll go for…

I Am a Tree in a Story about a Forest

I suppose this kind of thinking or realization comes with age. I’ve heard it said before that when we’re 16, we worry about what everyone else thinks; and when we’re 40, we don’t care about what anyone else thinks; however when we’re 60, we realize that nobody is thinking about us, because they’re all thinking…

Leveraging the Candle

We tend to look hard for passions, but a lot of times, passions are driven from past experiences. Things we’ve overcome due to difficulties. Life gives us pretty good reason to believe that we’re always going to be over coming difficulties, or struggles throughout our life. It’s apart of what makes us who we are, and…

Financial stupidity (my personal story)

I suppose my story of financial stupidity would start back in 1999 when I got out of high school and started at the community college.  I took out a $2500 school loan  (this loan will stick around way longer than I planned for more about it later).  I never had to make any payments on that loan until I was finished with school or until I quit.  Which I never finished my degree.  So about 2001 I was starting to make payments of $50 a month.

2001 was also the year I was married to my…

Business School on Your iPod

A few months ago I started what I thought would be a mini-series here on Coach Radio. I started highlighting a few people who were doing some of the same things our listeners aspired to. By interviewing them it was my hope that you'd be inspired to carry out some of your own ideas.



Well, it's exploded into much more than that as you can see…

The Unluckiest Man in the World

"The unluckiest man in the world." That's how my local newspaper refers to Rick Oliver.

Rick was struck by lightning in 2006 and survived. That's a feat in and of itself.

Earlier this month he went to investigate a noise and ended up getting run over by a bear.
