All my life I have tried to make sure I was heading in the right direction. From a young age I knew where I wanted to go and worked hard to achieve my goals. Now, I’ve raised four kids, competed in a ton of athletic competitions, and run a number of businesses. I also know that the world is filled with things that I can do or learn to make my life better.

Have you ever wished you had more time to read and uncover information that matters? Have you ever wanted to know more about a topic that could be helpful to you, your coworkers, kids, and friends?

My solution to this problem was to read and share. I have always been an obsessive reader of just about everything. Whenever I uncover interesting articles I share them with friends and family, always adding my own comments to make them personal. Most of these topics focus on how to live a better life – with my family, coworkers, and friends.

I have decided to share them with you. I call them LIFEies; weekly emails full of motivation, lessons, and simple facts of life. A LIFEies could contain a thought, an idea, a lesson, action item, or simply an interesting topic that any of us could benefit from learning about.

If you would like to be a part of the LIFEies weekly email, please sign up on the right. If you know someone who might enjoy this kind of reading, please share.

Hope you enjoy!

  • We are smack dab in the digital age. So, I have been trying out a few different ways to take notes over the past few years.  I am a compulsive note taker, and take notes on my phone, laptop and iPad, and old fashion notepads.  I take so many notes, that I had small notepads (4 x 7), normal notepads (8 ½ x 11) and some big notepads (11 x 17) made up just for me. There is one very im... Read More
  • You all know I am a committed goal setter.  More importantly, I track my daily actions and my highest priorities.  Finally, I am a milestone tracker.
