Living in the Now

I am a work in progress. I have so many ideas that things I want to accomplish that each day is a delight. It is also a burden. I have become addicted to busy- ness and can’t seem to find a moment to just be in the moment. I have jumped on the hamster wheel and am running with all my might. As I write my show notes for this week, I am torn between going out with my friends to a movie and dinner this afternoon or working on my book, or cleaning out the laundry room, or preparing for work next week.

Both financially and personally, my network has delivered so much value that I can’t even imagine what my situation would be like without it. If there is one thing that I could suggest that would be guaranteed to boost any business, networking would be it. But how does it deliver value exactly? Networking takes time. It is not an instant gratification thing. It is about human relationshi

Planning Your Financial Future.

This week we are going to have a little self-reflection. One thing I have learned over the years with my own money issues– and the money woes of my clients is that self-reflection is key to success. Managing your personal finances is all about being brutally honest with yourself. The more consistent your self-reflection, the better you will grasp the success (or failure) of your financial situation. In other words, if you want to succeed at money, you need to be constantly looking at your own life, your own goals, and your own choices until that kind of self-analysis becomes second nature. But, what if that type of self-reflection doesn’t come easy? I’ve found that when I’m struggling with m
