Building Your [Personality] Brand Online

Building Your [Personality] Brand Online

I launched this website a little over 6 months ago and the response has been wonderful.  I’ve been able to help quite a few businesses and families with their goals.  I love writing and connecting with people. When I first started I published a new article on this site about once a week, then IContinue Reading

Why The Tortoise Wins.  Every time. [ A Lesson From My Two Boys ]

Why The Tortoise Wins. Every time. [ A Lesson From My Two Boys ]

My boys are eight and six years old.  They are just learning about the value of money.  They feel like they’re rich when they have five or ten dollars in their hand (then they realize that they can’t buy everything they want with five bucks…). They wanted more money, so they started to think about someContinue Reading

Being Paralyzed with Fear

Being Paralyzed with Fear

Yesterday afternoon I witnessed one of the funniest and saddest things I’ve ever seen.  The boys had gotten home from school and come inside.  Lucinda (my wife for those of you not playing the home game) told our six year old son Will to go back out to the car and bring in his book bag.Continue Reading

How are you “wowing” your customers with service?

How are you “wowing” your customers with service?

I love this.   I dare you to watch it and not get warm and fuzzy.  I’ve had friends that watched this video and said that they wanted to fly across the world, just to lose something so that it could be found by this dog.   A few weeks ago I was returning aContinue Reading

Don’t Compare Your Day 1 to Someone Else’s Day 5,000

Don’t Compare Your Day 1 to Someone Else’s Day 5,000

If I could crochet, I would make a sampler that said, “Stop comparing yourself to your competition that has been around for 5, 10, or 20 years”. I love starting things.  I love launching businesses.  But for some reason I expect my first day in business to look like day 5,000 in someone else’s business. IContinue Reading

LIKE FREE PIZZA? LIKE ME? I’VE GOT GOOD NEWS!

Last night I created my newsletter.  But when I woke up this morning, I didn’t have 10,000 subscribers.  I figured something must be wrong.  I mean, it’s on the internet now…. I figured I would have a million sign ups by lunch.   I did have ONE (thanks Dad). I read a cool post fromContinue Reading

90% Done and Published is Better than Nothing!

90% Done and Published is Better than Nothing!

If I have an achilles heel in business, it would be this: I don’t want anyone seeing something produced from my company (websites, marketing materials, videos, etc) until it’s 100% PERFECT. That means that my video edits are perfect, my website doesn’t have any broken links, my printed materials have been read and re-read, and myContinue Reading

Want your kids to never have Credit Cards? They should help cut up yours!

When you go through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, you’re going to learn about how bad credit cards are.  Then they’ll ask if you have any you want to cut up.   Years ago when we went through the class, I had already stopped spending on my Best Buy card, but I wanted to waitContinue Reading

What to do when your best employees leave

Have you ever had a great employee leave?  I have.  It stung.  In fact, it happened to me more than once. In my business I had several different types of employees.  I had office, production, and performance staff.  Each one took a special level of training and mentoring to bring them to the level thatContinue Reading
