I spent the last six weeks entrenched with a dynamic group of young people. As always, I end up learning more from them than I could ever teach them.  There is something magical about youth and being child-like.  Over the course of our time together we bonded as a family.  We fought with each other…

One of the greatest joys I witness as a life coach is seeing my clients come in one way and leave another way.  I’ve realized that its so important to not only ourselves, but for others that our becoming great is vital for the world.  I often tell young adults that the richest source of…

Successful people have a secret that most don’t talk about.  They understand that you must be excellent at every step of the dream journey. Not when the dream arrives, but before and during the process.  I’ve told you  before that we are legends and no one will be able to live the human experience as…
