About three years ago, I decided to start a business to business networking group that I named Strategic Business Circle™.

Last year, I attended Caterina Rando’s Global Love Day (GLD) event and Caterina asked me to be one of her four speakers at her Global Love Day event last month. At the time I was honored and very excited to be offered this opportunity. Over time I put some thought into what I would say, […]

I know some of you are wondering where I’ve been for the last few months. I’ve gotten some inquiries so I thought I’d catch you up on what has been happening. One last time I will mention that I had knee replacement surgery in November. I gave myself a good amount of time off work […]

Back in 2008 I was working with Susan Tollefson, a time management specialist, to figure out how I could increase revenue and expand my business. At the time, in addition to my consulting work, I was doing contract work as a business consultant for the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). I liked the variety of […]

I have been reading Malcolm Gladwell’s book “Outliers, The Story of Success”. If you are familiar with Gladwell you know he’s a fabulous author. He’s also one of my all time favorites. In reading “Outliers”, what captured my attention is the concept of what he calls the “10,000 Hour Rule.” He tells us that researchers […]
