SELF ESTEEM IN SECONDS

When you’ve been downsized, outsourced, laid off, or fired; it can be a challenge to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get right back in the game with your self esteem intact.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Since the dawn of humankind, mothers have played an incredibly important role in our lives. Our mom is one of the first people that we learn to trust. We are intimately familiar with her heartbeat after spending months cradled right next to it. Her voice is what calms our fears and soothes us back to sleep at night. Moms care for us and love us in a way that no one else can match. Mothers are ulti...

The air is definitely starting to feel distinctly more autumn-like. Before we know it, Christmas will be here!

Impacting the Greater Good

Are you familiar with the idea of the Greater Good? The Greater Good is a concept that I believe needs to be considered more often these days. Too many times, people drift through their days, just going through the motions, without any passion for what they are doing or enjoyment in the process.

You need to fill yoursel...
