It seems like the last month or two of the year people are making plans for themselves and their business and then waiting for the New Year to execute those plans. I know, everyone loves to make their New Years Resolutions, and we all look forward to the “clean slate” and “fresh start”. My question is why? Why wait? Why not start now? Doesn’t tomorrow offer a clean slate and a fresh start? By putting your goals on hold until the page in a calendar is turned, be that New Years, Spring or whatever, you could be missing out on opportunity. You could be closer to your goal if you start right…

I always talk about the importance of being careful about what you post on social media. Try and stay away from politics, angry rants etc. But sometimes, it’s OK to have a little fun in your posts. The other day I posted a picture of a near empty tin of cookies asking if anyone wanted to refill the tin for me. This post got mixed reactions from people who know, and don’t know about my love of cookies, from ‘dude are you seriously asking people to make you cookies?’ to ‘that post is hilarious!’ The best and most surprising responses were from people I haven’t heard from in a while.…

The new year is a time we make resolutions, we look forward to great things happening, we have dreams of what could be. It’s also a time where we make plans for our business, set goals and yeah, dream of what could be.

I was talking to a Friend of mine who said his goal this year was to 4X his business. OK, what does that mean. Did he have an increase last year and was ready for another big one? He actually had an off year. Good goal, but coming from a down year it seems a bit challenging. So, I asked what his plan was to achieve this goal. He said he would work smarter, not harder…

I got up today and checked my calendar for the days’ appointments, ready to confirm and get the day going. My very first one cancelled. I must admit, this threw me off. My day was planned, it was a breakfast meeting, now what? What am I going to have for breakfast now? What do I do with myself until the next appointment? You wouldn’t mind, but I had a whole list of things I needed to get done, so my mind should have automatically gone to the first thing on the list and started there. This should be thought of as an opportunity!

We can spend a lot of our day wasting time. Waiting for…

I have a hard time accepting compliments. I honestly feel it is my job to help people. So, when I receive a compliment, I respond with the typical “no worries” “no big deal” “no problem”. I don’t like those responses. They make it sound like I am doing you a favor. When I am helping someone, I feel it is more of a privilege than a favor. So, a better response to your compliment or thanks would be “I am happy to help. It feels great to help a friend” I want to make people feel like they are helping me as much as I am helping them. When you trust me enough to help you solve something or work…
