I had the pleasure of connecting with Brian through one of the blog sites we both contribute to regularly. When I realized Brian recently released his book, I knew I had to recommend it. Even more so after reading the book. Read more...
Homeworking is here, and it’s here to stay. For many people, that’s a reason to celebrate. Finally, they have the freedom and independence to make decisions about their workload that positively affect their life outside of the office. Bosses have controlled this aspect of life for far too long. The good news is, Covid-19 has forced us to reevaluate the way we look at institutions.
Of course, this isn’t healthy for everyone. For you, a person who battles with their mental health, being stuck in the house can lead to depression. The key is to prevent the triggers from getting on top of you, yet how can you do it during a global pandemic?Read more...
During the COVID-19 pandemic, I made a promise to myself to add weight training to my exercise routine. I already had a steady schedule of cardiovascular exercises with my running. My strength game suffered.

There was that old weight bench in the basement that I’d purchased 20ish years ago. The weight bench sat dormant for many of those years. Well, except for us using it to hold the clothes we planned on donating to Goodwill.

Achieving a good blog ranking takes time. Whenever you post something online, whatever you’ve posted is going to cause a ripple somewhere, but are those ripples leading to the waves you really want from the online world? And if not, how are you supposed to do something to change this?

However, the answer can be complicated, and take a lot of time to work through, but even with these factors in mind, there are a lot of common mistakes you’re probably making. Even with the success you’ve found while blogging, could there be some things you can do better? Let’s go through them below.
Jim Carrey stars as No Man Carl. Carl lives his life in a constant state of NO. No matter what it is in his life, his answer is no. That is until a conference changes his life and he becomes a Yes Man.
The movie makes it humorous. It makes us laugh. Yes Man should also make us think about what we say no and yes to.
That’s what Yes Man does. It takes us on a trip of constant no’s to constant yes’s to somewhere in the middle.
I loved the main message behind Yes Man. I didn’t love everything in the movie.
That’s okay. We can still learn and grow from things we don’t agree with or like.
Today, we’re going to look at the leadership lessons in Yes Man. I hope you’re ready, man!
