With the recent happens around the world, more people as focusing on personal security that in years past. It seems no matter what your community is like, no one is immune to trouble. It can happen anywhere at any time. What does it take to keep your mind aware in various circumstances? Are you supposed to trust your “gut instinct” (intuition)? In “The Gift of Fear,” Gavin de Becker gives common sense tactics that each person should follow and practice. There are simple steps each person can take to be aware of their surrounding and trust their “gut” to stay safe. However, many people disregard those simple signals. The examples provided in “The Gift of Fear” are tools to learn form so the same mistakes will not happen in your life.

Children need to be taught how to leave (escape) situations so no injury occurs. This book will be a valuable resource to families. Personally, since reading “The Gift of Fear” my focus in...

Small Business Friday – Premier Designs with BethAnn

A few years ago, I was given a person invite to attend a small business network meeting at a local restaurant on a Tuesday morning. Little did I know that Tuesday morning would impact my life. The invitation to attend that Tuesday morning meeting was given by BethAnn of Premier Designs Jewelry. BethAnn invited me because I had a decal on my car due to a small business I was involved in at the time. From the moment I walked into the meeting, I could tell BethAnn was a servant. Her friendly greeting and her overall hospitality was beyond board for any small business networking meeting I have ever attended. It was clear she was not there to sell you her product, but she was there to assist you to help make your business a success. She embodied the standard of bringing value to small business.

A while back, I received Master Leaders by George Barna with Bill Dallas for my part in the Tyndale Blog Network. (Tyndale provides me a copy of the book and I get to review it.)

Sounds like a “duh” moment, but trust me, it is not.  Mr. Barna takes the reader on a journey through a “shop talk on leadership” by getting his readers to imagine sitting down in room with many of the best leaders on the earth today. You could...

Today is Monday and I will be happy. I choose the happiness of a Monday, consciously and actively.

I will choose happiness of time even though I might run out of time in a day, because some people will not see the end of today. I will choose happiness on a Monday and here are 21...
