Digitally speaking, blogging is one of the coolest and easiest ways to share thoughts and insights (often referred to as opinions) that are outside the usual. Look for fresh insights and stories each week.
I want to chat about something I saw in the dis-able bodied world that is truly inspiring. First, a personal story. I will fail the walking part if the police ever pull me over during a RIDE inspection. The brain injury I had several years ago left me with balance issues. Even when I am
I am sure I speak for all of us when I say our hearts are heavy, our brains are frazzled, and our anxiety is through the roof when it comes to everything in Ukraine. No doubt you have received pleadings from decent folk to donate to the refugees there. And your social feeds are regularly
Last week, I had the strangest call. A prospect was grilling me about how I might help him. At some point, he got a bit spicy and announced, “You have watched the Secret and have bought into the Law of Abundance.” Say what? I have never gotten past the first five minutes of the movie,

Lately, I have been thinking about when life gives us lemons. Such a polite way to refer to those devastating moments we have little to no control over. Y’know the ones I mean.

I was guesting on a podcast last week, and the host asked me what I thought the secret to success was. Without hesitation, I asked, “Can you let go, just a bit?” I have a history of being a classic type A control freak. I leave NOTHING to chance, over prepare for pretty much everything,
