You like me, you really like me!

It was 1985 when Sally Field gushed that memorable phrase to the star-studded audience at the Academy Awards. Afterward, she had to endure countless jokes about her proclamation. Poor Sally.

Is Your ‘Comfort Zone’ All That Comfortable?

They call it the comfort zone, but it’s not really all that comfortable when it comes right down to it. It’s like a sad old bed with a well-worn “me-shaped” rut gouged into it.

The Good News Is, It’s Your Fault

There’s nothing better than hitting that “sweet spot” with a potential client where I am absolutely sure I can help them, and I can clearly see the vision of the business they want to create and how to get there. And they simultaneously see me as the mentor who will help them achieve it. It’s […]

Start Your Business on a Shoestring!

It’s B.S. And you know it. You can’t start a business on a shoestring, unless perhaps you’re selling shoestrings.
