3 -4 Thursday 7/7/16

Years ago I watched a special July 4th TV show that focused on the dream of business ownership and the uniquely American opportunities. I was hooked. But I was also scared, not about starting a business, but how to make it very successful. I wanted to thrive, not just survive.

Watching a good fireworks display is an incredibly moving experience. I can’t help but remember those feelings of yearning for a successful business. Years later I have learned the difference between surviving and thriving in the business world, and I love to share those hard-learned lessons with others.

Each July 4th fireworks rekindles my commitment to helping other trainers avoid the pitfalls I experienced. My wish is that the second half of 2016 is wildly successful for you.

3 -4 Thursday, 6/30/16

This was a tough week for our family. My son was in Istanbul with tickets for a flight back to the US on Thursday. The tragedy at the Istanbul airport played out just hours before his scheduled flight.

It was scary and frightening. With the time difference of seven hours, things can be very confusing and unsettling. Until I knew he was safe, all of my energies were focused on any news reports I could find.

Finally getting the message that he was OK, released all the stress, and made me even more grateful for the country we live in and the freedoms we enjoy.

He is home safe now. There is a huge sigh of relief in our family and a deeper appreciation of the realities of life and the blessings we enjoy.

From my family to yours, Happy Fourth of July!
