Is it Time for a Work Detox?

Have you noticed how most of your day goes to stuff that is not related to what is really important? I am not even talking about the obvious things like dealing with spam, hanging out in Twitter, and people hanging on the telephone too long. There are lots of things that demand our time and […]

Wishlist Member Live

I wanted to tell you about an exciting new event I am a part of and make sure you had all the info before the early-bird deadline, October 1st. The event is Wishlist Member Live.

Bloggers Mean Business

Eat Your Own Dogfood

Feel the Fear and Launch Anyway

I just got off a call with my NLP coach. We swap services, so I give him advice about internet stuff, and he helps me with my (many) “issues”. One of the things he is helping me work through is my fear of moving my family thousands of miles away to live in Calgary, Canada. […]
