Why Forcing Things to Happen Doesn’t Work

Let’s face it. There are lots of things in life that are easy to do. It’s “easy” to wake up in the morning and brush your teeth. It’s “easy” to drive your car from one place to another. It’s “easy” to do some of the tasks you do at work each day. These are skills you have mastered, and as such, they come easily to you. You do them almost without thought or concern. In an entirely different realm lie the things that come to you “with ease.” They are fun to you. You wake up excited to take them on. You are passionate about...

4 Questions to Enhance Your Client’s Experience

A few weeks ago, my husband went to get his hair cut at his favorite place. At this particular franchise, they not only cut hair, they know how to treat a man right. Envision flat-screen T.V.’s, “manly” invigorating scalp massages, hot towel treatments and neck/shoulder massages. A guy can walk out feeling like a million bucks! Hubby loves this place.

Do You Need a Time Out?

The concept of taking a day of rest once a week is nothing new. The ancient Jews did it. I grew up in a faith that also encouraged it. What I’ve learned later in life is that a day of rest is not only advisable, I actually experience more balance in my life when I take the time to participate in this practice. In February, I went to a conference in Los Angeles called “Spark & Hustle.” My good friend invited me and being that it’s only a short plane ride away, I accepted. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I’m not really a “sparkly/hustley” kind...
