Tracy Cater – Believe In Yourself

Posted by on Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

It’s a rare and wonderful moment when everything feels right and life is actually moving at a manageable pace. You’re feeling good about your accomplishments. You even worked out today, cleaned the house, and are having a really good hair day. And then, it happens. Someone’s mouth opens and out slips negativity. Perhaps the words are general or maybe they’re directed at you, but as it lingers in the air between the two of you, you have a choice: You ... Continue Reading



Gigi Gobbett – Embracing Life’s Detours

Posted by on Monday, May 12th, 2014

Gigi Gobbett thought she had her route in life figured out. It wasn’t until she strayed from it that she found the inspiration to make her dreams a reality. Hindsight is always 20/20, as the saying goes, but if you told Gigi back in college when she was studying finance and accounting that she would have her own Independent Consulting business, she would have laughed. That was certainly not part of the straight path she was creating for herself. And an ... Continue Reading

Everyone has their own definition of what it means to live life to the fullest. Some of us crave constant adventure and excitement, while some of us long for a quiet place to escape.

Beth Taglieri – Making Room for Success

Posted by on Monday, May 5th, 2014

I’m too busy. How many times have we uttered this excuse to avoid adding yet another commitment to our already overwhelming to-do list? Our schedules are packed with work, chores, and errands, while we simultaneously chase around children or try to balance family life with some fun, leaving little to no time for sleep, much less the energy for anything beyond what we’re already managing. But what if those things we are too busy for are then missed opportunities for ... Continue Reading



Chad Thilborger – Focus On Others

Posted by on Friday, May 2nd, 2014

It’s that phone call from a friend, asking how you’re doing during an especially stressful week, or the stranger that notices you struggling and helps you carry all of those bags to your car. It’s a simple smile, and the little ways that people go out of their way to help us that really mean so much more and make a difference in our everyday lives. Chad Thilborger has always known the importance of helping others, dedicating his life to ... Continue Reading

Posted by on Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

It may begin with a tired sigh, then lead to sweaty palms and anxious foot-tapping. Eventually, the dreaded sinking feeling in the pit of the stomach comes about, a side effect of the notion that not enough is getting done, of that desire to accomplish more. At this point, it’s not long before those sneaky, discontented thoughts worm their way into one’s mind: I wish I had enough time to work on the book I’ve been wanting to write. If ...

We often enforce strict standards for ourselves and impose our own immobile ideals on others or our jobs. And, then, when we aren’t expecting it, life breaks down those walls with its own plans. Darryl Oliver knows what it’s like to be inhibited by false judgments and restricting expectations, but he’s been fortunate enough to learn the liberating lesson of letting go. While he is now a successful entrepreneur happily living in Colorado with his wife and three children, for the ... Continue Reading
