The Cornerstone of Marketing

Time for Giving Thanks

Once again, we are approaching the Holiday Season.  I swear, it comes faster with each passing year.  It is interesting; when you are young, time seems to stand still.  You are always waiting for that next big milestone: starting school, becoming a Teenager, starting high school, summer breaks, getting your drivers license, graduating from high school, starting college and finally graduating from College. 

More Than One Opinion is too Many

Last month’s blog I asked the question: What if we had no labels?  I discussed how in life, business, and everything is based on a labels.  Because of labels, it causes division and separation instead of inclusion.  For business, it creates an advantage for some and disadvantage for others.

What if…We Had No Labels?

Working full-time, working on my business, spending time with my daughter and other obligations, the time just flies by. I can’t believe we are already in April.

Life Lesson #2: Every Business is Different, Just Like the Owner

Last month I started my Life Lesson series on how to correlate doing what I have learned in life and where I can see it being applied in my own business as well as in others. So, lesson #1 was Be True to Yourself and to Your Business. In other words, when you created your business you had a plan for it, a look, a feel, etc. Don’t compromise that, unless you want to and for the reasons you want to change.
