When Life Gives Us Lemons

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. Death of someone close. Loss of a job or a business. Divorce. Horrible illnesses that happen to ourselves and our loved ones. …

How’s Your Creativity Quotient?

One of the most overused phrases in business is ‘up with the creativity and innovation quotient.’ I mean, it sounds fabulous. EXCEPT. Where do you start?

And much of the conversation is around how a supply chain can function without an adequate supply of humans.  However, there is another pressing issue.

Last Friday, I received a slap-in-the-face lesson about Praise, and today I want to share it with you. I was walking the last 20 minutes of my daily 90-minute trek when a gentleman stopped me and asked if I had a phone. Of course! What’s the problem? There is a lady over there (gesturing to …

Just Start

Last month the post about endless possibilities caused a commotion.  While most agreed with me, the common question, was ‘where do I start?’  Let me explain. You have a big dream.
