Christmas Ideas – The “Lovecat” Way
One of the most influential people in my life has been renowned author and speaker, Tim Sanders. In his book, "Love is the Killer App" he talks about living life as a "lovecat." It's an iteration of the Golden Rule that suggests we allow love into our business life - [...]

You Then Me

Help someone else, with no expectation of anything return.  It's the foundation for kindness. Now, let's be real -- does your flawed self really allow you to do that?  Seriously - ask yourself that question.   Do you do things for others on a regular basis without that little guy on your [...]
