The Winning Entrepreneur does what Others Won’t

Nov 9, 2015

As an entrepreneur, when you have successfully created five different $1 million businesses in four different industries in the span of 26 years, you paid your dues and earned the right to tell the story of how you did it. Each one was created differently but the one thing that was common among the first […]

Vacation Rule #6 – No running. No pushing. And no electronics near the hot tub!

May 9, 2014

There is something that sounds just a little bit out of place about setting rules for vacation. A vacation is supposed to be a let-your-hair-down-consume-drinks-with-little-paper-umbrellas kind of time. Right? So, what’s with the rules?

What chapter are you on in your firm?

Apr 8, 2014

Here’s an autobiography that I believe puts a fine tip on the point I’d like to make. Chapter 1:  I walk down the street.  There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.  I fall in. I am lost … I am helpless.  It isn’t my fault.  It takes forever to find a way out. Chapter […]

Spend More Time Looking Through the Windshield than in the Rear view Mirror

A little change can make a big difference

Jul 17, 2013

So many times when I work with clients they think that in order to make a big difference in their practice they need to make big changes. Many times, that’s just not true. Here’s a story I originally heard from Larry Winget that makes my point. One day, when we lived back east, I was […]

Will they hate me?

May 7, 2013

A long time ago my grandmother told me, “What other people think of you is none of your damned business”. Yes, Grandma said the word damn.  She was a tough but loving Greek Orthodox woman who ran away with my German Protestant grandfather only to be excommunicated from her family and friends for nearly a […]

Apr 23, 2013

For as long as there have been pet stores, there have been kids falling in love with the front end of the puppy.  They gaze through the pet shop window at that adorable little face and they just have to have it.  They beg mom and dad over and over again until finally one day, […]
