I keep going to seminars on the local media, not because I don’t know much (I actually am quite adept at them), but because I keep learning more. So can you, if you add awareness to relatively little effort. I am the sort of person who goes to a party and does what is commonly known as “working a room.” I don’t that term, mainly because it is often used as a pejorative. But actually,

Many of us are feeling helpless these days as the world changes around us. However, I believe that we can predict what is coming reasonably well if we develop a future-oriented mindset. To do that, we can learn from the great science fiction and fantasy writer, H. G. Wells (1866 – 1946). His keen observations of scientific phenomena, combined with logic and math, allowed him to predict a number of trends and developments over the

In listening to the media frenzy over the newest wall street movement it shows how we as a nation have come to regard our political system as being inadequate  for the times we now live in. Most people are finding the american dream hard to have in this economy. With increases in the price of food and gas it leaves little for anything else.  And most if not all feel as though we have become

In the age of ubiquitous social media, I find that so many people lose sight of the fact that developing a personal brand involves real relationships with actual human beings.   Technology has become “comfort food” for far too many of us in developing Me Inc. similar to popcorn at a movie theater.  It is so easy to become enamored with the number of connections and followers we have across social networks.  We feel the

All of us need to be a part of our local community, weather its donating our time to a church, school, fire dept or whatever. When you get involved in these activities you take ownership and pride in your communities. So next time someone asks you to help an organization or the local school, even if you only have a little time to give its better than not at all. Wanted to add something more

This law states that the complication factor of a strategy or course-of-action is directly proportional to the square of the plan’s complexity. This Law almost guarantees that any plan or strategy (business or personal) that involves numerous players will go wrong. Complications will arise. A good example of this are large government contracts. The cost overruns are usually a multiple of the original cost. If you are implementing a plan or strategy that has many

Make one more call each day before you shut it down.  There are approximately 260 working days per year.  Do the math.  Success is an acquired taste but one that you will come to enjoy if you will get in the habit of doing just a bit more each day. It is by no means easy but nothing great ever is.  Stay focused on creating an authentic experience and you too can differentiate yourself amongst

We all make investment choices available. What yardstick would be the most appropriate for both individuals and business people to gauge each one?  Some people make their investment decisions based primarily on rate-of-return, while others deem safety of paramount importance.  Some others focus on the tax aspects of an investment. While all of these concerns are important, they should not be deciding factor in basing your investment decisions.  The most important investment criterion is the

Embracing Failure

Written by Alicia Marie Fruin I have heard it said that “if you can’t do it right, then don’t do it at all.” I wonder how important it really is to always get it “right”? How many times does this philosophy keep us from just taking the next step? Could this just be a strategy designed to play it safe? Do we really think “if I am careful I won’t fail”? Really? I find that
