Point to Ponder
yourself with those who believe in you and will help you achieve
your goals." Lisa Marie Yost
When you are struggling,
and that happens to each of us, remember to apply the wisdom in this
quote. As someone once said, "the best time to dig a well is before
you are thirsty."
Building a valued support
network is a worthy activity if your desire is long term success and
growth. These valued friends, coaches, cheerleaders, and champions
will help you weather the storms and detours life puts in your way.
Invest time along the way building your network and remember it
works both ways. You have the responsibility of being there for them
Life can be challenging
at times. Careers and businesses go through dips and detours. Make
sure to keep focused on your goals and dreams. Having a supportive
network will help in this regard. It has for me; more often than I
can count. I am so blessed with the amazing people in my life.
My wife, my friends and colleagues, and my clients who invite me
into their organizations.
"If people offer their help and wisdom
as you go through life, accept it gratefully. You can learn much
from those who have gone before you." Edmund O'Neill

When you meet Kelly
Falardeau for the first time all you see her radiant
smile from across the room. Then as you get closer you see her smile
get wider and her beautiful green eyes shine a special welcome at
you. I've known Kelly Falardeau for some time now and
contributed to her first book. Yes, frankly, I knew she
had scars, but they never seemed to matter. The beauty that shines
from within makes them pale and fade in the shadows. Kelly has an
irrepressible spirit of joy and adventure and she makes you feel
good when you are with her. In her case, for sure beauty does not
come from a bottle, it comes from her heart. This book should be on
every little girl's reading list. For that matter, on her mother's
too and then the two of them should talk about how to apply its
wisdom in their lives.
We are continuing to work on converting our
books into EPUB (reader format) and offering them via Amazon, Apple,
Kobo, Barnes & Noble etc. We actually sold our 1st copy of
Running to Win! last week. 1 down and
10,000 to go!
Our objective is to
revamp and upload at least one book a month. We have 3 uploaded now.
Now that we have the system in place to ensure they are properly
formatted, I have my work cut out.
It will be fun to rewrite
and revamp both my thinking and my words.
