LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD

We often gave her little hints and explained that playing with your parents and older brother was difficult, and that meant that she would usually not be the winner.  I remember one time when she actually put her little hands under the board and tossed it into the air.

YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS: WILL YOU KEEP THEM OR BREAK THEM?

2021-01-01T09:36:41-05:00

Everybody else seems to be doing it, and we believe that if we make them, we’ll undoubtedly meet our goal(s).  Unfortunately, research indicates that only 8-9% of people actually achieve their New Year’s resolutions. Most people fail within weeks, sometimes months. Why? There’s a number of reasons, which can be sorted into three categories: Your goals might not be in line with your values.

And do I have some fun info for you on this, the first day of the first month of a brand new year! We all know about the tradition of serving and imbibing the bubbly for celebrations, like the one that helped us turn the page away from 2020 and launch ourselves headlong into 2021.

UP-LEVEL YOUR BUSINESS THROUGH YOUR EMPLOYEES

2021-01-01T09:36:57-05:00

I have a suggestion: Bring your business to the next level through your people.  Yes, your people. As a small employer, I understand the need for rewarding and respecting your employees to grow your business. Before this, I worked in the corporate world, where working the daily grind can be unforgiving, particularly for the employees.   I know as an employer and as a business owner that you’ve already got a lot on your plate. But trust me when I say [...]

2021-01-01T09:37:05-05:00

Photo by Cyrus Gomez on Unsplash By Maria Sylvester, MSW, CPC Let me attempt to capture here, if even possible, an inner experience that literally stopped me in my tracks and left me completely out of sorts.

I’ll zero in a bit more. The void occurred split seconds after I suddenly realized, with lighting-bolt impact, I no longer have any dependents to look after. Oh. My. Gosh. Anyone else with [...]

2021-01-01T09:37:13-05:00

Photo by Ahmed Syed on Unsplash By Monica Brancheau Oh yes, we reminisce about the days we could just jump on a plane and travel to anywhere in the world. It’s definitely a challenge to be restricted from visiting places we would love to explore. Although travel within our country is allowed, it comes with its own set of challenges because of COVID. For those of you who are having wanderlust for airline travel, read this as a reminder that it wasn’t ALL wonderful. Sitting in a tight space with complete strangers for several hours can give you a glimpse of [...]
