Managing Influence (rs)

In the past week, I have thought a lot about influence. I have had conversations about influence as it pertains to leadership in the workplace. I also talked with a couple of moms on different occasions about the influence of other kids on theirs just because I was in the right place and willing to … Continue reading Managing Influence (rs)

REPRINT: Resolving debt isn’t so bad, if it’s done right by Robert Fulghum

"One man's trash is another man's treasure." A huge benefit from my 10-Day Clutter Free Challenge is that I'm finding some great treasures I saved from 5, 10, 15+ years ago. One is this article. I wish I could remember the exact date I saved this article written by Robert Fulghum from the newspaper.  Better … Continue reading REPRINT: Resolving debt isn’t so bad, if it’s done right by Robert Fulghum

The main contenders are the Cleveland Cavaliers (his current team and closest team to his childhood home of Akron), New Jersey Nets, New York Nicks, Chicago Bulls (his favorite team growing up), and the Miami Heat (team to 2 of his closest friends). Oh yeah, I also read the Clippers were in there too.

Hey Internet, say it to my face!

Our experiences in life drive our opinions. And at one time the only folks who knew your opinions were those closest to you: family, friends and maybe a few co-workers. We didn't have to agree but we respected another's position and left it at that. Times have changed. The Internet has expanded our reach to share … Continue reading Hey Internet, say it to my face!
