Reflections from Amy

By taking the time to stop and appreciate who you are and what you've achieved - and perhaps learned through a few mistakes, stumbles and losses - you actually can enhance everything about you. Self-acknowledgment and appreciation are what give you the insights and awareness to move forward toward higher...

Notes from Steve

“Give me one good reason why I should never make a change.” This is from that song I wrote about a couple of weeks ago – and also my motto of the moment. And “disruption” is my word of the moment. This kind of scares me, because it feels like...

Notes from Steve

Notes from Steve

I get asked, “Did you have a great weekend?” on Mondays a lot. “No, not especially,” is my honest and truthful answer. I’m not sure what I am missing here but it seems like people are having the times of their lives from 6PM on Friday to 6AM on Monday....
