“Growth stops when you lose the tension between where you are and where you want to be.”

-John C. Maxwell

"The greatest courageous act that we must all do is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can live our dreams." ~ Oprah Winfrey

Do you ever feel like you are doing all the ‘right’ things and not seeing the results?

Og Mandino says that “It is those who concentrate on the one thing at a time who advance in the world.”

What are you concentrating on?

We need focus and we need to focus on the right things.

There is no magic formula, however there is a formula.

It's taken alot of trying to get things right, I finally got it...

The gift lies in the journey.

The best gift that a business owner can give their business is the best version of themselves.

And I want to share what I am learning with you.

We talk about all thing's leadership, business, and personal development. We may even throw in a lil’ tech tool help here and there too!
