• Building Up By Shakespeare

    Cover of William Shakespeare “This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man. Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!” Hamlet Act 1, scene 3, 78–82 “To thine own self be true” is Polonius‘s last piece of advice to his son Laertes, who is in a hurry to get on the next boat to Paris, where he’ll be safe from his father’s long-winded speeches Reading this in the original Elizabethan text can be somewhat “mind rattling”… But let’s put it out there in “plain-folk” English. Polonius thought his son’s borrowing of money,…

  • Once upon a time

    I loved those words as a little girl. It meant a good story about  a princess and a prince and the wonderful words at the end “and they lived happily ever after.” I continued my love for reading and expanded from the “princess” fairy tales, to the fantasy books about the battle of good vs. evil.  “The Hobbit” by Tolkein was one of my first followed by books by C.S. Lewis. Even today I’m easily inspired by a good fictional, fantasy book about the power and battle of good and evil. My website is all about the battle against good and evil. I know you’ve seen the websites out there. …

  • Speeddate your life

    Have you heard of SpeedDating? The first time I saw it was an episode of “Sex in the City” I’m probably one of the few in the world that only ever saw a couple episodes of the show, but this one captured my interest. SpeedDating (the spelling as one word is a trademarked word!) actually originated by Rabbi Yaacov Deyoto offer the local singles of the Jewish faith in Beverly Hills a way to meet a large number of new people.  It’s very organized, with tables and a set time for folks to visit.  Then the timer dings and they move to the next person.  At the end of the…

  • Build Your Business with Consistency

    As many of YOU as well, I work a 9-5 job (which is really a 7a – 4:30 job) and while some businesses are experiencing a downturn – the company I work for is NOT.   Recycling is a BOOM right now (so um, ya, go buy that new computer but remember to recycle responsibly  =) It’s insanely BUSY right now – and SUMMER is suppose to be a slow down in that industry, lol. I think we can say for the MLM business as well?  Folks ARE looking to diversify their incomes.  They are looking for a Plan B, and HECK, some are looking for a Plan C or D…

  • If you want a revolution the only solution evolve

    This crazily addictive song by Kevin Quinn is the new Gatorade commercial. The tune is catchy, the words are simple and the message shows several sports moments. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYgFjBDoHNA&feature=related[/youtube] I don’t even remember the first time I saw it, but it’s one of those commercials now that I do not zip past with the DVR. I WATCH it. I listen. And I get a booster shot of motivation. The entire song is a motivation, positive thinker, “ I CAN Do it” attitude adjuster. Do you notice how the music quality even evolves – from scratchy LP version to a crisp clear digital version? Look how the sports have evolved! If you…

  • Jumping over the what to blog about hurdle

    HELP! What do I blog about? You decided you wanted to blog – maybe for business, maybe as a hobby, maybe a little bit of both. But, now you are stuck and wondering about content – WHAT do I blog about? Blogging regularly = ideas. The more you blog, the more topics and ideas will come to you. You will start looking at actions, daily life, and events and say to yourself “I can BLOG about THAT!” Reading other blogs by friends, peers and mentors will also be a good source for content. Talk about what others are talking about, in your own words. SO, what do you write about…

  • How to shorten your blog post with the More Tag

    Have you ever seen those blog posts where all you see are a few sentences, and then you will see  “read more here”. You click and magically the rest of the post appears. How do they do that? Well, if you do your blogging with WordPress here is how you can make that magic happen on your blog. Log into your WordPress account. New post. Type your blog / article posting. At the point in your blog where you would like to split, and have the remainder of your article appear only when someone click it, insert the “More Tag”.   It’s that button on your WordPress tool bar that looks…

  • Drink upstream from the herd

    Image via Wikipedia Texas Wisdom Always drink upstream from the herd. Back when cattle was moved across country by cattle drives  the ultimate goal was to be able to make camp by  a stream.  All the livestock could drink, the cowboys wash up a bit, the cook could clean the pans he had been scrubbing with salt or sand.  Water was a good thing. But, remember those cattle were not housebroken.  So while they were drinking in the stream, if they felt the urge to “go”, they WENT.  Right in the water!  I know, NOT a pleasant thought! It’s not very hard to figure out.  If you wanted REALLY clean…

  • Texas Wisdom

    Image via Wikipedia I’m starting a  new series here on the website – Texas Wisdom. The sayings may have come from cowboys of the past, farmers, businessmen and women – Lots of sayings I’ve heard Texans say or write (and true, they probably got them from someone in another state!). But they will be some words and thoughts that will hopefully brighten your day and hopefully leave you a little bit wiser when you leave than when stopped by. I hope you enjoy Texas Wisdom!
