In the books on blogging they teach you never to apologize if you haven't written for a while. But gosh it's been an awfully long time. I've been writing though. Just not here. Because as I may have shared before,... Continue reading

Hi and thanks to you both. I found my passion by acting on a few things that I thought were them. That was the only way for me . . .

Hi Billie - What a fun approach! Three simple questions is a great format to help people down this important path. And I love the idea of setting "ridiculously high standards". Now you've got me thinking . . . Look forward to our call tomorrow!

I have a problem. It's one that you might share. In fact, half of the world may be with me on this one. And it has to do with good intentions. And an optimistic view of my ability to wake... Continue reading

After a few years of writing, here's an idea I've been meaning to take action on . . . An e-book. Built off the concept of this blog. Another way to share the message that it's better to share ideas... Continue reading

Hi Lani - Yes, I know! Time is not on my side! Maybe if I had a publicist - she could do it for me? :-)

Yep - I killed it. Will update the post to reflect. The idea failed miserably! :-)

Yes, it feels good to live with more authenticity . . . agree!

Thanks Lani - Always liked this idea better than a physical punishment like a spanking or a timeout. Would love to see someone bring it or a similar idea to life!

Sometimes it is hard justify holding on to url's - some think they will sell them some day if they don't use them. If the idea is a good one and have real plans to keep it, keep paying. But if not, at some point, you'll have to give it up as fantasy not reality and let someone else run with it!

Thanks Lani - Come back anytime!

Hmmm. That's a pretty good idea! But when when will I find time for another?? :-)

One of the cool things about taking action on your ideas is the feedback you get. Verbal and non-verbal. That feedback delivers guidance that I never had. Before I started writing this blog. To share my ideas and begin kicking... Continue reading

When I decide to make change, it's often big and this time is no different. So after a lot of thought and gnashing of teeth, I decided to pull out the wrench, pliers and knitting needles. After that the hacksaw... Continue reading
Christina - I like that one - and there are a lot of networkers too focused on their own situation. Not yours. Thanks for adding that one! Tim
1 reply
Hi Christina - Concerning multiple career paths, you can certainly create a card for each. But, my own personal philosophy is that you focus your networking and your materials on one key path. Prevents confusion and gives people a real tangible and specific bit of direction if they'd like to help . . .

Suzy - love the way you think about and think through my ideas. It allows me to think about them differently as well. Kevin Liebl is a great guy - lives here in Orange County. We get together regularly now to talk about blogging, social media, marketing and the like. You can find his blog here: http://kevinliebl.wordpress.com/
