    ARE YOU A HERO OR A VICTIM?

    In coaching there are frequently heroes and victims, but when they come in the door, the coach doesn’t know which is which.  They might have the same characteristics, the same story, the same problems, and the same experiences.

  • DON’T BLAME THE CHILDREN

    DON’T BLAME THE CHILDREN

I’m a ridiculously gregarious person. […]

    6 Traits of People with Sex Appeal

    As amazing as it sounds, I have learned that men do NOT fall in love when they are horizontal. When men are horizontal, they are in LUST and just having sex. When they are vertical with their clothes on, they make the decision to fall in LOVE. That being said, let’s get honest. Sex appeal […]

    A-Z BLOG: “B” is for BLINDERS

    In our strange and wonderful world, people all look essentially alike. We are all born with a basic physical design, typical mental abilities, and an ability to learn. This is a good thing when we consider that our similar bodies allow us to sit in a chair, walk on an escalator, and sleep in a […]

    Are your resolutions for 2014 realistic?
