I also tell you this because so many people come to me telling me that they think they don’t have the skills, the drive, the intelligence, the opportunity, the support, the confidence, the whatever …

Where Do We Find More bandwidth?

So I’d like to start this week by confessing a little something… I’ve got a pretty big man crush on Elon Musk. Ok maybe “man crush” is a bit strong, but I most definitely admire the guy. I mean, just take a look at what he’s accomplished and continues to accomplish, not only for himself …

Let Go and Reap What You Sow

Let Go and Reap What You Sow

Fall is in the air… Another season, another transition… Autumn is my favorite season because you get to reap the rewards of your work from the year. You get to reap what you sow. As a former farmer, this metaphor really resonates with me because if we look to nature, it’s kind of comforting to …

We are all insignificant

We Are All Insignificant

Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen nonstop information on the solar eclipse. Everywhere from social media to the news to radio to newspapers were talking about it – and for good reason.
