I just read an article about a tech executive who was getting up in age and applied to both Twitter and Facebook for a six-figure job in Silicon Valley. That area is notorious for hiring only twenty and thirty-somethings, and for locking out people over 40. To make a long story short, he didn’t get either job, but he later thanked Twitter and Facebook for the opportunity and the nice people he had met during the interview process. Left without a job, he connected with another
I love superhero movies. Who can resist a good Batman movie, or Gal Gadot playing the role of Wonder Woman? I think it was one of the Spiderman movies where the hero comes to the epiphany that his superpowers were not just for fun and games. With superpowers comes super responsibility. He then embraces his superpowers as his contribution to his fellow citizens. There’s a “superpower” that you may have been given, but you probably didn’t ask for it and you definitely don’t wan
Have you ever wanted to be your own boss? To set your own schedule; pursue your own dreams and agenda; to build something lasting for yourself, your family and community? If the answer is "Yes," then I challenge you to become crystal clear about what you want for your life, career or business! You may ask, "Am I prepared to take that step?" But are you prepared not to? If you follow my work, you're probably a person who's decided to take control of their destiny, and to direc
Hey Friend, When was the last time you laughed? This might seem like a strange question in the midst of a global pandemic, but it's been proven that laughter truly is one of the best medicines in life. One way or the other we will have to get through this crisis. Let's choose to believe together that sunnier days are ahead! I once heard Tony Robbins say, “When you stress it's because you are fearing something.” This could be something that you believe you do not have the pow
Life can feel overwhelming at times and it can get the best of you if you do not have a game plan. Troubles come to every household at some time or another: It could be a health issue, a business setback, a financial famine, or whatever. With the ongoing pandemic and economic fallout, it feels like the w0rld's stress-meter is at a breaking point! So, what can you do? When you begin to feel the pressures mounting up, let me suggest trying one of these three methods that I use
Is there Someone greater inside of you? I heard someone say recently "I know there is something greater inside of me," and knowing that person very well I agreed. Many times we allow fear and doubt to stop our greater self from surfacing. As a result, we live way below our potential. While it is possible to live a good life this way, it will not be a fulfilled one. I believe that God created us to fulfill certain tasks here on earth. As a matter of fact, the Scriptures state
It takes a lot of years to build a brand. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton did it. When Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton entered the 2016 presidential campaign, regardless of your politics, you felt you knew them. Unless you've been under a rock for the last 30 years, no doubt you would have ran across a National Enquirer headline, seen Trump on The Apprentice, or Clinton jetting around the world as Secretary of State. And if you are like most entrepreneurs who desire to be ri
Have you ever wished that you could get more productivity out of your day? Then you have to learn how to take control of your day like a boss! That’s how ultra-productive people do it. So here are a few tips to put you in the driver’s seat. Tip #1 - Get up Early. Try going to bed a half hour earlier and getting up a half hour earlier each day. You will feel more rested and energized. Start your day with some mindfulness, like prayer and/or meditation. When you arise before th
Regret is a weird word isn’t it? It makes you feel strange and weepy somewhat, sorry almost. Have you ever seen those commercials where the older version of you tells the younger version that it’s going to be alright if you take certain steps? Wouldn’t it be great if that was possible in real life? Imagine being able to talk to an eighty year old version of you; to be able to know what roads to travel and which ones to avoid. Well, we know that isn’t possible (at least not ye
Why? Well, it’s usually because I’m talking out loud to me! I have my game face on, my hands are moving, and I’m seriously affirming positivity over my life, I’m claiming the promises of God, and I am commanding my day! In some circles they call this self-talk, and it’s a powerful tool in your tool-kit for self-growth. Let’s face it, the world is filled with negativity. You don’t have to go looking for it, it’s just everywhere. Sometimes it emanates from our personal spaces,
For many women, Mother's Day is a great day!
For others it was sad, as they may have lost a mother or a child. I spent most of my day yesterday at my mom's nursing home, and it was a bittersweet experience as I sat there and watched the families who were visiting their loved ones. It was heart wrenching to see that some of the patients did not recognize their loved ones, due to loss of memory or other illnesses.
I looked at the circle of life and realized that no one reall
Yesterday, believers all over the world celebrated Easter. People who had not been to church in ages poured into the pews to celebrate the Lord’s miraculous victory over death itself. Wow! What a triumph! Now Easter is behind us. I wonder what they’ll do. Will the Easter story move them into a real life change, or will it fade away just like any other event? This happens all the time. We’ve all read something inspirational, or attended a seminar about something we need to cha
I was reading a copy of Entrepreneur Magazine recently and saw where it was reported that a lack of confidence and a fear of failure are two of the biggest factors holding women back from starting their own businesses. When given a chance to start or expand a business, women were consistently more afraid to take the step than men in the same position. It made me think about you. Are you having the same insecurities? We have come a long way as women, but some of these old mind
