With every breath you take in life, you have the power to make new choices, see things in a different way and adopt new beliefs — regardless of anything that has happened in your past. Your future does not have to controlled by your past.

What happened in your bosses life that was so terrible that he/she had to decide not to let anyone in? It’s been my … Continue reading

When you provide added value to their employers… not just because they’ve sat in a chair pushing the same button for a long time. If you can help, contribute and help your employer build their business and make more money, why wouldn’t they be delighted to pay … Continue reading
If you have a problem with an individual, talk to the individual. Nobody needs more general rules, regulations and laws to solve individual problems.
