Kindness goes a long way

Kindness goes a long way

When my youngest son was born, he almost died. He entered this world asphyxiated on the umbilical cord. I sat there holding the hand of my wife lying on the gurney getting stitched up as we watched his lifeless body be tended to by the nurses. Quickly he was rushed...
Stories matter

Stories matter

Life lessons from skating

Life lessons from skating

My boys have been learning how to skate for the past year or so. We don’t get out enough to see significant progress or so I thought. I took them out a few weeks ago. It was the first time in the past year. Last year, I had the boys out 3 times I think. Up to that...
How far can you see?

How far can you see?

When I began my business 7 years ago, the furthest thing from my mind was an end game. If someone asked me seven years ago, “What is your plan for your company when you retire?” I would have looked at them with a dumbfounded blank stare. Pie eyed and oblivious. Over...

What’s in a name?

There are those moments when you are not in the room and your name is spoken. The person saying your name is often talking about their experience with you to another person. Emotions, memories, feelings are flooding that person’s mind. We can only hope what they are...
Time for a gut check

Time for a gut check

While I watched the movie The Founder, I caught myself, many times, smiling pervertedly. Giggling like a school girl. Staring in astonishment as the story unfolded. I was pointing to the TV and saying “f-ing genius!” As creepy as it may have looked to others,...
Who are you trying to impress?

Who are you trying to impress?

I remember early in my 20s how I had a chip on my shoulder. I was set out to prove to everyone that I was going to amount to something…anything. I was desperate to impress everyone else but myself. Unfortunately, that way of thinking was counter productive. I...
Convincing is not required

Convincing is not required

“Your job is not to convince, you have no business trying to convince anyone of anything ever.” – Blair Enns I love Blair Enns. His book Win Without Pitching was an integral part of me being in business for the past 7 years. The quote you read was from an email...
