Turning Spare Time into your Most Valuable Hours

(Another awesome guest post from Amy’s daughter Ashley!)  I can guarantee with 100% confidence that there is at least one common thread between everyone in the world—the rich, the poor, the lazy, the successful, the top dogs, the bottom feeders, and everyone in between. Each of us only has 24 hours in a day. That

What Separates Winners From Losers Isn’t Talent, It’s Attitude

Seth Godin has said, “It’s not really a search for talent. It’s a search for attitude. There are a few jobs where straight up skills are all we ask for. Perhaps in the first violinist in a string quartet. But in fact, even there, what actually separates winners from losers isn’t talent, it’s attitude…An organization filled with

Learning the Hard Way

The older we get the more we realize how much better life is if we are just willing to learn things the easy way – like by listening to those who have been there and done it and who have the experience to give us advice on avoiding pitfalls we will face. In the early

Life is an Echo

“Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you.” -Zig Ziglar I want to share a story with you called “The Mountain Story.” A son and his father were walking in the mountains. Suddenly, his son

Will That Help Me Get Better?

Having the chance to hear other people’s stories is such a blessing because you can learn from their life lessons without having to go through the actual experiences yourself. It happened that the entrepreneur I interviewed today has

Profit From Failure

You probably read today’s title and wondered how it is possible for anyone to profit from failure. It is success we profit from, is it not?  The profits from success may be far more obvious to everyone, but I would submit that we can profit just as greatly from failure if we choose to. My

When’s the last time you read a book just for the fun of it?

As a kid I used to love reading books. I read so many books just for fun growing up and I absolutely loved doing it. The older I got, however, the more I started reading books for school assignments, and then that morphed into reading books for work matters to try and gain more knowledge

Those Words A Parent Never Expected to Hear

As those of you who follow my blog know, my son Dalton recently got engaged to his sweetheart and we are now in full blown wedding preparation mode. Because they want a short engagement it is like wedding planning central at our house with invitation selections, picking colors for the reception, figuring out venues, booking

Six Core Values that Help me Succeed

Several years ago when I was posting my daily blog for my employees of my company I invited them to give me subjects they wanted me to blog about.  Several of them asked me to post about what I think has helped me in my life to be a more successful person and mother, aside

Expand Your Horizons!

Tonight I attended a dinner for the board I serve on at Utah Valley University.  It was a western BBQ with cowboy hats and boots and sweet belt buckles!  They had a banjo player and a yodeler and they did some cowboy poetry.  It was a great evening and it reminded me of when we

Being The Best Isn’t About Knowing The Most (Forbes Article)

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” – Stephen Hawking When an individual believes they know all the answers, they shut themselves down from the possibility that there is more they might learn on a subject. They limit themselves from experiencing personal growth and gaining intelligence. They are

I Need Your Advice!

Normally I try to provide insight on life lessons I am learning in my daily blog in order to try and help others avoid having to go through some of the same struggles that I do.  But today I need to turn the tables and ask all of you if you would be willing to

I LOVE to LEARN

I love learning from a room full of incredibly smart people!   Today I was able to attend a meeting that was put together by Leavitt Partners (founded by former HHS Secretary Michael Leavitt, also the former Governor of Utah).  Leavitt Partners has formed a group called Health Intelligence Partners, which is a collaborative panel of
