Apples and Babies

Sitting down to write this month’s BLOG, it was hard not to notice the fact that there is much happening in the world today; numerous events, goings on, etc. all vying for our attention…

Actionable Goal Visioning Statement

Wow, can you believe it’s November, 2018? Children have been back to school for some time now, the leaves on trees have turned, and yes, the holiday season will soon be upon us once again. As a final step towards creating and executing actionable goals…

Managing Distractions: Turning April Showers into May Flowers

Is it just me or is the economy truly making an upturn as we enter May, 2018?

So “Why,” you may ask, “Should I work to receive what is mine so I can give to others?” Well… as we realize that our cultivating our innate talents and abilities (i.e., refining our excellence) is not solely about us, we begin moving towards the answer.

Ever feel like you’re one step away from achieving a goal but just can’t seem to figure out what’s missing to execute it?
