The “Latte Effect”

What is it?? It’s the “Silent drain” of your money. It’s when you buy a latte for $4 and a muffin for $3 while you’re at it. That’s only $7 a day but over a month it’s $210. In coaching, I have found that most of the time the “Latte Effect” is usually spent on… Read more »

Sometimes, we need to…

“Soak” it all in. Not to “zone out” but to “zone in”. We all need to “soak” on, the big picture of what has been going on in our lives, and to make a check list of what has worked and what hasn’t. And within the process, we need to “zone in” on what we… Read more »

Things don’t happen to us…

They happen for us. When things happen to us, we become the victim, and when things happen for us, we are in charge and it is up to us, what we do with it, or what we do about it. It’s all about perception. Whatever comes our way, comes our way, and it is up… Read more »

Why do we have to get older??

I don’t know, but we all age… regretfully. When I first moved to Las Vegas to be with Zappos, I went to this haircut place where it’s really bright inside. When they finished, they spun me around and asked me how I liked the back….I couldn’t believe it!!! It was the first time I saw… Read more »

Many of us that…
