If you’ve felt it, you know magic happens when the right people enter a space. Sometimes it’s serendipity; most of the time there’s a driving force. I want to encourage you to take part in what Seth Godin has dubbed the Connection Economy — to use your most meaningful relationships to inspire you to create […]


It’s easy to hide

February 21 2013

We’re exposed now more than ever before. Our steps are easily trackable, our buying decisions traceable with the click of a mouse. We document our lives on film for our friends and the world to see. We post our professional accomplishments on open social networks. We look for validation and response from what we show […]

Never ever

You may never see the writing on the wall. You may never feel one-hundred-percent. You may never hear, “Yes, you are right.” You may never know if there was any other way. Will this stop you from ever?
