Stop Striving

I wanna be rich! For a solid 5 years of my life (probably longer, but I can specifically point to a 5 year span), I wanted to be rich. It’s funny because never before and not since have I cared about money like that. I’ve always appreciated nice things, but money never had a grip on […]

Who’s the Boss?

I love 80’s Sitcoms The Facts of Life, Diff’rent Strokes, Silver Spoons, Webster and Alf were some of my favorite sitcoms from the 80’s. I also liked Who’s the Boss? Who doesn’t love some Tony Danza?

7 barriers to your dream. How to hurdle them.

We all have dreams. I dare you. Name it. Say it out loud. The reason you read this blog, get on forums, attend seminars and workshops is that you have a dream. The dream varies specifically for each of you, but it’s just as real for each of you. You have a dream. We all […]

Escaping the Killer D.

Yesterday, I shared that the US is beginning to go back to our old ways of increasing debt, and that no studio ever needs to be in debt (and showed why). Find that article here: Return of the Killer D. The truth is that many of us are in debt already, so how do we […]

Return of the Killer D.

The killer D is debt. According to a recent USA Today article, 2 years after seeing debt decrease and savings increase, the trend has reversed. In the US, credit card debt is up 368% from 2 years ago. While this may be good for your business in the short-run, it will be bad for you and your […]
