Karaoke Wig Night
Justin Krane - Money Strategist for Business Owners

I was on this panel at an event for small business owners.

Everyone on the panel was chillin’ with their handsfree wireless lavalier mic.

One of the panelists forgot she was already mic’d. She thought she needed a handheld microphone.

Why the Road To Perfection May Run Through Imperfection (A True Story)
Michele Pariza Wacek (Michele PW) - Love-Based Biz Strategist and Copywriter

This post is dedicated to all of you who want your “gift” to be perfect before releasing it to the world. I’m talking about those books and info-products and any other projects that aren’t quite ready and need “another round of edits” before they’ll be “perfect” and ready for the world.

Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

Gratitude is one of my most favorite superpowers. I love November because it’s a built in reminder (it comes every year!) to reflect, appreciate, and say thank you.

When we take a few minutes to focus on what we are thankful for, we don’t have time to complain or feel upset. Our whole being is filled with appreciation.

Why Most People Fail at Their Goals
Michele A Scism - Small Business Consultant and Marketing Strategist

Your end-of-year inbox is probably soon to be crammed with tips for end of the year and New Year goal-setting. Many are feel-good, rah-rah types of messages which are fun to read, but about as helpful as the endless “inspirational” infographics that flood your Facebook feed. And many are so generic, they were probably copied from straight from Oprah—they make you feel bad about your life while you are reading about how someone came out of nowhere and is now making 6 figures in their business. They usually leave out the fact that the person has really been working hard for the past 3 years and only got traction this year.

Fabienne Fredrickson - Founder of (Previously

I recently spoke with a new student about his business. Prior to joining our Business School, John experienced a tremendous decrease in revenue.

Despite putting his best face forward, he was stressed and not taking a salary.

He was worried – as anyone would be – about how to rebuild and get his cash flow back to where it used to be.

Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

Think of yourself as the two distinct roles that you play in your business – business owner and employee.

Personality #1: You as Business Owner/CEO.

Does being overwhelmed, unfocused, a slow decision maker and super busy describe you, as CEO?

The Martian
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

As we walked in to see The Martian, I wasn’t sure what to expect. As we walked out – it had become one of my top favorite movies of all time. I won’t spoil it for you – but I do think you should go see it. One of the messages behind it is all about problem solving.

The main character in the movie never gives up because he can’t. His life is at stake.
