How Becoming the Boss Can Change You
by Dawn Lennon - Sep, 2011
Faults are often easier to see in others than ourselves. As employees we’re daily observers and targets of our supervisor’s style. What we see reflects what our supervisors have become. If we’re lucky, we’ve got a good boss. If not, we’d like to run for the hills. It’s hard to believe that ineffective supervisors used to be regular employees, like us.

How to Attract What You Do Want
by Marshall Brown - Sep, 2011
Over the last several years, I have been reading more and more about the law of attraction. I was first introduced by the concept with the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know, followed by, The Secret.

Kick in the pants
by Hallie Crawford - Sep, 2011
Sometimes people just need a kick in the pants. My friend Lauren’s husband started his own successful law firm 5 years ago. How long was he wanting to pursue that dream? 7 years. It took his law firm dissolving in order to get him to step out on his own. Now I’m not saying he never would’ve ventured out….he probably would have. But some people never would, and some of us just need a push to pursue our dream, because let’s be h...
