Why Talk about January Now?

After many years of working in the direct selling profession, I have seen a pattern emerge year after year.  You hope that January will be great, right?  Hope is not a strategy. Fast forward to March of next year.

Don’t Make the Same Mistake I Did

As a child, you often learn the limits of life through the pain that you experience.  You don’t touch hot things, you work to not fall down because it hurts, you stop throwing tantrums because of social disapproval.  As an adult, you try to bring your life lessons to others so they don’t have […]

Interruptions are coming at us from all directions and from many different people and devices all day long? Studies show that for every interruption you have, it takes 15 minutes to recover and refocus.  It’s a wonder you get anything done, isn’t it?
