Hand Up… or… Hand Out?

Tonight at 8pm, ABC will air its second Secret Millionaire episode. It’s a show some call inspiring, and others (those, possibly, with an eye for self-reliant behavior) call just interesting. In a very uncharacteristic move, I’m refraining from telling you the level of conviction I have for either side of the spectrum (er, for now!) 🙂 […]

The Big (“Poor Me”) Gamble

I didn’t set out with a desire to create a post about a topic so dispiriting — so head-shakingly disgusting — to start off the week.

To your neighbor, it might be about Midnight Mass and worshiping a chosen Messiah. To you, we hope it’s about joy, love and exciting expectations. The Christmas spirit is […]

“If We Open It, They Will Come” (Business Narcissism)

We live in one of the nation’s most idyllic towns — a small Southern Oregon jewel that is surrounded by some of nature’s greatest wonders. It’s protected by 360 degrees of small mountain peaks, and one of the most majestic rivers flows through the heart of it. We say it’s small because, while we’re in one of the west […]

Why ‘The Crowd’ Likes to Regulate Success

 About 3 weeks ago here, I threw out my appeal for thinking straight — for being the person who doesn’t sit back, ponder about life, and produce little of substance. I talked about how “talk” (in the form of the Washington-infused word HOPE) means nothing when it comes to increasing your monetary value (the post […]

Why do you keep telling people this… ?

“I don’t have the time!” Well, if you don’t, in theory, neither do I. You see, time is the one constant that all us human beings have. After all, we each have the same 86,400 seconds per day to do what we need, want, and have to do. Somebody once said that life gives us […]
