One of my clients finally got pregnant with her first child, losing it the following week. One of my clients endured the first anniversary of losing his dad,... Continue Reading →
How Are You Showing Up?
The first time I ever heard that question was from my long-time mentor Andy Andrews. He was speaking live at a large business convention and shared the story about how his mentor, Jones, asked him that very question. Andy was a young man then, and the answer would change his life. The critical question is... Continue Reading →
Hard Compared to What?
This past Monday morning, I was training one of my clients who admittedly needs to lose a good bit of weight. He is super-sharp in running his own company; however, one of his biggest struggles is not allowing his business to dominate his life. I have coached him over the past few months to build boundaries around... Continue Reading →
28 Days Too Late…
On the morning of September 25, 2020, it hit me out of the blue, and like a ton of bricks, that I hadn’t seen any recent posts from my friend and former client, Damon Taylor. And while the optimist in me said to check Facebook, my gut told me otherwise. So, with my gut winning... Continue Reading →

The Treasures from Trials
My pastor's "Daily Word" is an email devotional that he publishes Monday through Friday each week. The message the day following my MRI reading and the scheduling of my shoulder & bicep surgery couldn't have been more timely. The theme was on the treasure of trials in our life. Pastor said trials can fortify us,... Continue Reading →
What’s Your Story?
As a Christian I feel an obligation to share about my faith in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. My purpose in this post is not to address the steps to salvation. For that topic, I specifically wrote "Do You Have An Insurance Policy For Eternity?" earlier this year. This is just a simple story... Continue Reading →

In honor of my Mom and to all moms worldwide, the following is a tribute. My Mom taught me so much as a child; many of these lessons have stayed with me. A few, in particular, have grown to become absolute fundamentals that my life is now based on. A common thread running through these... Continue Reading →
