The Outliers In his book, Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell explores success. Why are some people successful? Is it luck? Is it timing? Is it practice? Is it finances? Is it talent?

Who are you leading? Who is leading you?

Who is with you? Who are you with?

Leading 101 I’m passionate about leading, and there is one important thing everyone must know if they desire to be a leader: You’re not leading if no one is along for the ride. When I read the bible, many times I read it through the eyes of what it means to lead. It’s one of […]

No Party Line.

On Living Well. One of the more important books on writing, so I’ve learned, is On Writing Well by William Zinsser. It is a thoroughly enjoyable book.
