You may be familiar with the Chinese calendar that assigns an animal and its attributes to each year.

The constellations were named according to Greek mythology and astrological theory was developed based on the stars supposed influen…

Last week I attended an entrepreneurial event like non-other. Over the past 1 ½ years I’ve spoken about this event with many people. Of the people I’ve invited, 10 have attended. Each person who’s attended thought it equally fantastic. That’s not the reason I’m writing about the event, but more to explain about it before I delve into the specifics of my reasoning. The 50+ attendees were at varying levels of entrepreneurial experience. More importantly, their ages spanned at least 6 decades. A striking fact about these events is that the producer has creat…

We're halfway through January so, is it too late to start on the road to a New You for the New Year? Nah,,, It's Never Too Late. Did you know that healthy aging month has been celebrated in September for the past 30 years? It was established by Christine Worthington, president of the Educational Television Network with the purpose of promoting the idea that people over the age of 45 should take personal responsibility for their health and well-being. This as it relates to their physical, social, emotional, and financial lifestyle. Irrespective of religious affiliation or belief, I would add s…

"Who Do You Want To be?" may sound like a peculiar question. It came to me after a conversation the other evening with a business acquaintance. A man in about his mid-thirties, I’ll call him Ben, going through a serious medical situation. His attitude was so unbelievably positive, his energy upbeat, his voice strong, his fortitude and determination palpable, I could almost feel it through the telephone. It wasn’t a false positivity, it was heartfelt and genuine. I could sense it came from the very fabric of his being. Despite what he described as an unbelievably high pain toleran…

As a new year is upon us, it dawned on me that when reflecting on 2022 and anticipating 2023 it was similar to the pauses of reflection and anticipation used in public speaking to punctuate a point. After you've said something important, whether speaking to 1 or 1000, give the the listener(s) the opportunity to soak in and reflect upon the words, the ideas, the feelings, the concepts, by pausing for a few seconds. We are so accustomed to speaking quickly, from one word, phrase, sentence to another that at first it may seem like an eternity. The other side of the coin is to allow your …
