Teach Them to Fail!

I couldn’t agree more. It seems these days everyone wants to be PC. Not me. I’m tired of it and I agree with Chad!

What Are YOU Selling?

Everything … and I mean everything … is selling. The food you ate for dinner last night came to your table because someone sold something. The fuel you put in your car has to be sold to the gas station and then again to the consumer. The diapers you put on your baby had to be sold to someone or your baby would be diaperless. The list goes on to infinity. Literally.

If someone had told me years ago that I’d be selling anything, I would have laughed uncontrollably. Why? Because a “salesperson” conjures up a vision of the old snake oil salesman. Sadly, some people still think that way. As Zig Ziglar would say, that’s ‘stinkin’ thinkin.’ Zig devoted himself to raising the image of salespeople everywhere. I admire his work and tireless devotion.

Our buddy, Zig, also said “Money isn’t everything, but it is reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.” Until we somehow magically no longer have a 02.28.18valuableneed to pay for things, money is still it.

So what did I sell when I began my career in the staffing industry? Peace of mind. The peace of mind that comes with hiring the right employees for the job. It’s what I did for many, many companies. The ripple effect was amazing! The company was delighted and so was the new employee. I made sure of it. Was it challenging at times? Yes. Was it rewarding? Yes, because the rewards outstripped the challenges by a mile.

I’m no longer in the staffing business, but I’m still in the “peace of mind” business. And I absolutely love it. How cool is it to be able to show someone how to bring their standard of living up, providing them with more disposable income and more freedom? In my humble opinion, it just doesn’t get any better than this. I love being able to show people how to lower their financial stress.

Am I selling you something right now? No. Not unless you’re in the market for peace of mind. Fill out the contact form here if that’s what you want.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

 

 

 

 

The Promise

With the promise of Spring around the corner, the Iris bulbs in the yard are beginning to break through.

This image is one I took in 2015, in keeping with my promise that no flowers will come into the house without being photographed. I simply added some thoughts to the image.

Did I mention we have snow flurries here today? I’m not a fan – haha! Just sayin.’

Wishing you all a remarkable Spring!

You Have a 5-Second Window

“You have a 5-second window in which you can move from idea to action before your brain kicks into full gear and sabotages any change in behavior.” – Mel Robbins, author of The 5 Second Rule.

Watch this powerful video about it. (I know … you’re rolling your eyes about me posting another video. Haha!) But you know I’m giving you the good stuff, right? 🙂

What Does That Mean Exactly?

At the end of my posts, I write a simple phrase – Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

It’s a simple reminder that we are all walking each other home. It’s about the journey and the souls we meet along the way. Nothing happens by chance. Everyone in our lives is there to be a lesson or a blessing. Some will be there briefly. Some will stay for a long time. Pay attention to the lesson or the blessing. We’re in this thing called Life together.

So what does Namaste’ mean exactly?  (Hint: it’s about love).

The Surging Epidemic

What??? Another video, you say? (Hey, it’s my blog so I get to do what I want. Hehe).

But this is important, so listen up, dear ones. In lieu of Throwback Thursday, please watch this important video (9 min. 43 sec.) It affects all human beings.

Jimmy is a smart guy. I really like what he puts out there. It resonates. Listen to what he has to say. Maybe it will inspire you, too. And if you’re so inclined, share it with those you love.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Interview with God

In lieu of doing another Throwback Thursday, I wanted to share this video that I received from a friend this morning. I had seen it before but today with all that’s going on with hurricanes, fires, politics, and the world at large, it was such a profound reminder.

I believe in synchronicity … there are no accidents. This was given to me again for a reason. Enough said.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
