[buzzsprout episode='7713004' player='true'] Earlier this year, I recorded an episode about the 7 Deadly Sins of Money Mindset. One of those deadly sins is listening to cynics, naysayers, and frenemies who put you down and trash-talk any idea you have on bettering your life or business....

I recorded a special broadcast on Saturday after reading the NY Times op-ed "Don't Go Down The Rabbit Hole." As they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. We should be engaged in more critical thinking and healthy skepticism, not less. If you missed...

[buzzsprout episode='7979929' player='true'] Special Saturday broadcast. 🛰️ On Thursday, the NY Times published an op-ed about critical thinking and internet disinformation.

I don't mind saying: I don't miss the office. At all. In the town closest to me, someone tried to get one of those coworking office spaces going and I don't think the place lasted even six months. Meanwhile, I have to psych myself up just...

[buzzsprout episode='7663969' player='true'] January was a crazy month for me. My plans of just half-hibernating through the month went to the wayside and I had a couple of bizarre experiences. I am sharing them here (highly sanitized, of course) so that perhaps you can benefit from...

[buzzsprout episode='7418524' player='true'] The other day, I read a post on social media where some poor (and probably well-meaning) guy was writing the same ole, same ole attempt at differentiation marketing in staffing & recruiting. You know the drill: "All the other agencies suck. Let me...
