Now that your teens are in school again, are you concerned they're back to risky behaviors on the Internet - sending inappropriate sexual pictures and texts on their cell phones? If so, you're not alone. A recent survey of parents with children between the ages of 10 and 18 found their number one worry was not school shootings, bullying or grades, but sexting. Nearly half said their child had received some kind of racy…

As you approach retirement, you may ponder how you will spend your time and what your future is. Even if you have a carefully thought-out plan for spending your time, as you should, you know you are working with some unknown variables. How long will you be alive and kicking? How will your health remain over time. Life is always a bit of a numbers games. While you can't control the unknowns, you can improve the quality of your life. Part of that includes getting or staying…Continue

My mother was diagnosed in 2003 with emphysema, COPD and chronic bronchitis. She immediately quit smoking and was prescribed medications and emphysema treatments that would slow the progress of the disease. The doctor did not hesitate letting us know that the disease was terminal.

In an internet dependent world, time-honored ways of promoting your business just don't work. In just a few decades, we have gone from begging the phone company to send more Yellow Page directories to an era where no cares about them. Traditional marketing does not work as consumers' shopping habits have changed. People today find businesses on their smartphones or online, not in a paper directory or a newspaper. Direct mail still has its supporters, but in an age where…Continue

"All work and no play make Johnny a dull boy", the old saying goes. Many people adapt this line to fit what they see as their reality: "Too much play and not enough work make Johnny a poor one." They justify working all the time, with few vacations and little time off. When they retire, they have a problem, as they have not established a good balance of work and leisure.

A well lived life leaves a legacy of missions. Missions that transform not only ourselves, but others.
Why do people who believe they lived in a previous life always think that they were Joan of Arc or Alexander the Great in their celestial past? If it is true we have walked the earth before in a different incarnation, then most likely we were a scullery maid or foot soldier. History may never chronicle our past life story, but who’s to say that the…

Virtually every business has a website these days, which reflects the reality that people shop - or at least look - online before they buy. The average website visitor may come back seven times before they buy - not the way you want it to be. Once your site is up, you want immediate results from it, as part of some sort of Field of Dreams mentality:If you built a website, they will come. In reality, you should be asking…Continue

Easy? You want ‘easy’? Convenient? You want ‘convenient’? Then you need to get a job!
How serious are you about growing your business? Who said it was going to be easy, or convenient? Being an entrepreneur is work – hard work, at times.

A wise boss once told a group of managers, "Prepare your staff to take over your job." In a shaky economy, where people try to prove themselves indispensable, this was astonishing advice. His point was that you should always be looking toward your next job, so you need to develop the leadership potential of your staff. You ought to surround yourself with smarter people than you - in fact the smartest ones you can…Continue

“Build this day on a foundation of pleasant thoughts. Never fret at any imperfections that you fear may impede your progress. Remind yourself, as often as necessary, that you are a…
