Do All The Things

This picture is of a STARBUCKS cup I received from my wife’s cousin in Buffalo, New York.  My wife, son, and I were driving back from Canada and we stopped at my wife’s cousin’s house in Buffalo.  It was getting late and we had a long drive…

Just a few weeks ago, I was faced with a few regulatory challenges in my business.  There is no shortage of regulations in the USA when it comes to commercial business.  Due to the abundance of regulation, it can be difficult to operate at…

Lack of direction and what it means

My last post was titled, Lead by example and today’s post is titled Lack of direction and what it means.  As just a FYI, I do not plan the sequence of my blogs or even put much thought into what my next blog will be.  It just…

Influencing from the lower levels

One of the crucial activities in starting my new role at my workplace is meeting the team and individuals I will be working with.  It helps build relationships with your new co-workers and allows you to better understand their roles in the organization.  During…

Providing direction for your children

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.  Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.  Similarly, we do not always need to provide our children with answers and instead, we can provide them with direction to find answers….

Financial risk

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about risk?  Are you thinking about your day to day and where you are risking your life?  For example, your daily commute to work and back.  You could also be thinking about…
