“Don’t look back! You`re not going that way!”

In today’s post I want to offer words of encouragement to anyone facing hard things in their life right now (which pretty much includes all of us in one way or another): As You Travel Through Life As you travel through life there are always those times When decisions just have to be made, When

Growing Up

Growing Up Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were. You wonder what’s to come. But then you realize that it is time to let go of what has been and look ahead to what will be. But letting go isn’t always easy. In every aspect it is hard at times

This is Our Motto, In God is Our Trust. Happy Memorial Day!

“O thus be it ever, when free men shall stand; Between their loved homes and war`s desolation; Blessed vict’ry and peace, may the heaven rescued land; Praise the power that hath made and preserved as a nation; Then conquer we must when our cause is just; And this be our motto, In God is our

Life Is Short: Wear Your Party Pants!

Years ago I came across a speaker named Loretta Laroche, who is absolutely fabulous. She teaches people how to let go of stress and allow humor into their lives. She is definitely one of my favorite motivational speakers. Seeing as how today was a very long and stress filled day, I decided I could use

The Grumblers and the Busy Beings

There are two types of people in this world, and it’s not those who like Neil Diamond and those who don’t for you “What About Bob” fans. No, I am referring to those who Grumble and those who are Busy Being. If you haven`t heard of the “Grumblers” and the “Busy Beings” before, let me

Episode One of American Gnuity Wraps

Friday and Saturday of last week were two incredibly long days of filming on the set of American Gnuity, the new reality television series which picks amazing entrepreneurial companies from across the country to be mentored until the top 20 teams are narrowed down to the top three by all of America who can support

When Someone Shows You Who They Are, Believe Them

Throughout my career I have encountered many people in the business world:  Some are honest and good, and some are not.  The most important thing to recognize is this – when someone shows you who they are through their actions and their behavior – BELIEVE THEM!  If someone has shown a track record of honesty

American Gnuity: Think Shark Tank meets American Idol

American Gnuity:  Think of it as American Idol meets Shark Tank – this is the new Television Series that begins filming THIS VERY WEEK and the first city for company auditions is none other that Salt Lake City, Utah!  Next the show goes to Austin, Texas, then Nashville, Tennessee and then to Washington D.C. to

“Great things are done when men and mountains meet.”

I love that quote by William Blake, although I change it to read “where women and mountains meet” for the version on my wall :).  Today I want to talk about overcoming obstacles, mostly to help remind me of how I need to always take on the obstacles in my own life. One of the

Wear Sunscreen and Other Valuable Life Advice

Back in 1999 a poem came out that I thought was cute, but not especially meaningful. Later they even made the poem into a song.  As I read that same poem today I no longer find it just cute, I find it extremely meaningful and I can’t help but get choked up by it.  Oh

To All Chief Inspiring Officers

Happy Mother’s Day!  I had to get that out there very first thing because there is nothing more important today than stating appreciation for all the Mother’s and future Mother’s and single Father’s playing the role of Mother.  THANK YOU!  For loving us, inspiring us, putting up with us, taking care of us, fixing our

One Person Can Change Your Life Forever

21 years ago today I lay in a hospital room giving birth to a 9 pound 7 ounce beautiful baby boy.  It was my very first child. I was only 21 years myself when I gave birth that day, and now today, 21 years later, it is my son’s 21st birthday.  Crazy. I remember the

“First we make our habits, then our habits make us.”

“First we make our habits, then our habits make us.” – Charles Noble.  How true it is! And so often we talk about trying to change our bad habits, but rarely do we talk about starting good habits. I have learned that focusing on the positive is much more effective for me than focusing on

Making a House a Home

We did it!  We actually spent our very first night in our new house.  We are still surrounded by boxes and papers to unpack and put away, and there is still a punch list of “to be finished or fixed items”, but we have officially begun living in our new house. So I have to

Where There’s A Will There’s A Way

It is 1:33am and we just finished unboxing for the night.  I went to get out my laptop to write my blog and realized that I didn’t have the power cord. We tore through boxes looking for it but finally had to give up.  I panicked because I have not missed even one single day of
