When I speak, I have a tendency to ask a lot of questions. I do this for at least three reasons. First, to check in with the audience and keep them engaged. Second, to help them see that they aren’t alone. Third, to learn something about the audience so I can tailor my message (if

I was listening to a webinar today from Naomi Dunford, and one of the questions led to some discussion about older content on our websites.

As we finish up the month of July, it’s a good time to reconsider your progress in your goals. What did you say you would do this year, and how far along are you? Is it time to reevaluate those goals? Maybe things in your life have caused some stumbling blocks. Maybe your goal to lose 40 pounds is

Can you believe it? 2011 is coming to an end. Did you accomplish anything, or did you “make it”? Don’t feel bad if that’s the case, sometimes just making it can be an accomplishment.

As the holiday season really kicks off today, maybe it isn’t a bad idea to look to where you’ll be in just

It’s easy to let life “happen” and cause you to miss doing some of the things you need to do. In fact, it’s even easier to let those distractions keep you from doing the things you enjoy doing, right? So, what’s the trick? How do you keep doing what is important, while also getting in
