Going off Scripture

This month I wanted to share with you something that is going on in my business life, my new podcast, Going off Scripture, with Marilyn Hickey. Throughout my profession, my only goal has been to help and change the lives of others. I truly believe that is my purpose in life. So whenever I see an opportunity to do that, I jump on it. I was approached by my close friend and mentor, Marilyn Hickey, to create a podcast with her. So two...

Building a Strong Team

I work with leaders daily who are always looking for ways to encourage and motivate their teams to meet goals.  As a leader, it can be difficult getting a team to think together and to move forward together.  I believe this is up to the leader and how they connect with their team.  As a leader, you must remember that you can no longer do the hands-on tasks.  Each member of your team now has the tasks to do as you oversee and mentor...

Take Chances

Some individuals I come across have figured it out and move forward without turning back.  They took a chance somewhere and it was the right decision.  Some on the other hand are stuck in a rut.  I call it a rut because it a place in which you can’t pull yourself out of.

Think Positive. Be Positive

I am reading a great book called, “The Power of Positive Thinking”, by Norman Vincent Peale.  It is a very old book but has life-changing principles.  I read it a long time ago and my husband got us back into it and we are now reading it together. After reading the first chapter, my perception on life in general has changed drastically. I think we need to take a look from time to time at our attitudes of people and life. It is healthy...

Staying Positive will Change your Life

As I reflect on my childhood I remember even though the times were tough and close to impossible for any improvements in being financially stable, my family had this positive attitude.  In my latest book, Winning the Game of Life, I write about those hard times and how we overcame the emotional side of this horrible season of our lives.  We just stayed positive and consistently believed in hope. When I was around 8 years old, my dad...
