Leslie Flowers' great post on Taking it To The Source led me to post this.
You have two options when you receive sub par service or defective merchandise. You can go to management to make it right, or say nothing and pay anyway.
I got tired of saying nothing and paying anyway. It didn't resolve things to satisfaction, it left me irritated all the time, and it…

I just read a great article in Success Magazine last month which was based on the principle that increasingly our most scarce resource is not our time but our attention.
These days phones, app’s, tablets, computers, texts, and emails not only compete for our time, but almost more importantly, they compete for our attention. It is great to set an appointment reminder on your phone, but when you start getting reminders, texts, and calls while you are working to achieve your goal, these…Read More

Setting goals and why we rarely achieve them
The word goal becomes common even during our childhoods. In sports like basketball, soccer, and hockey, we hear often about making goals to score, and then the team with the most points wins.
As students set goals at school: to read 50 books a year, to make good grades, to edit the newspaper, to be selected for the…Read More

I was recently asked that question, and the answer is yes! You may still have some children in college, a spouse who relies on your income, an aging parent to care for, just to name a few reasons.
Another good question is - do you own the right kind and the right amount? You may need less coverage than you did 20 years ago and its a good time to look at permanent coverage so it will be there when it is needed the most. There are several options and they are easier to…Read More
The company you keep speaks volumes about who you are. The implications go far and wide, your values, your beliefs, your goals, your attitude... It is true in business and in our personal lives.
As hard as peaceful demonstrators may try to disconnect themselves from violence and destructive behavior in the Occupy Wall street movement, they cannot. Here is a link to an article about what has happened in Oakland. It is very disturbing.…Read More

It’s January, taxes are due soon and 2011 was not as great as you had hoped. What do you do? Move forward. Its 2012 now – a clean slate with which to write on.
So 2011 did not go as you had hoped. You may not have found time to enter in all your deposits and receipts and have everything stockpiled in a drawer or box. The business card was used for personal purchases – well – a couple of times (or more!). Cash flow felt more like a cash drip with some months wondering how all…Read More

Independent. Freedom. Courage. Resilient. Resourceful. Risk acceptance. These are the characteristics of two species: the human species we call “entrepreneur” and the bird species we know as the North American Bald Eagle. What better icon for an entrepreneur could there possibly be? For centuries this majestic bird has been a symbol of power, courage, freedom and independence.
“Wait a minute”, you are saying, “I don’t think eagles flock” and you are right.…

I saw this article the other day on linkedIN about retirement. I thought it was worth sharing.
This issues has always raised some questions for me to ask people.
What are your thoughts on Social Security for retirement?
Do you save for retirement, whether it's a 401k, IRA, or some other savings account?
Do you ever really think about…Read More

I love it because it is simple in design, but oh, so effective! Their website…Read More
I LOVED being pregnant and women hated me for it. Mothers who LOVE being a Mom and are naturally "good" at it - or appear to be - I ENVIED.
My pregnancy wasn't even as good as textbook - it was better. I might have experienced 1% of the topics discussed in "What To Expect When You're Expecting" by Heidi…

Have you ever used Duct tape to fix a broken item. I can bet this was just a temporary fix and you ended up having to replace the item eventually or worse having to spend more in the long run. "Diets"are like duct tape. They may work temporarily but they do not fix the underlying problem. Is there an imbalance that is causing weight gain and difficult loss, is there a stress or emotional issue that causes you to eat when you are not hungry, can a little education on proper balance of…Read More
