November 8th is ELECTION DAY in the USA!

Today is a monumental day in the United States of America. We finally were able to vote for our next president...The President of the United States of America. What an honor to cast your vote as citizen of your country to choose the next leader. I am not in the USA right now, so I had to vote via absentee ballot.

Saluting All Bostonians on Marathon Monday

Today is Patriots Day in my hometown of Boston, Massachusetts. Although, I am literally on the other side of the world in Dubai, I still feel a sentimental connection to my hometown on the One-Year Anniversary of the 2013 Boston Marathon Bomb Attack. The Boston Marathonis an historic event that dates back to 1897 and has come to epitomize strength, endurance and commitment.

Today is Easter Sunday but many Christians like me refer to this most important Holy Day as Resurrection Sunday. The difference between the two for believers is monumental. For those of us who are not only believers but also small business owners, resurrection is an essential part of running a successful business.

Never Give Up

Today I realized that great leaders are those who never give up on their dreams.

No matter how hard things seem, true leaders do not give up.

They find a way to maintain their relevance and they also persevere in the face of defeat!

I am committing to never giving up on my dreams ...no matter what comes my way!

3 Quick Business Tips for Small Business Success

I was asked today to give a quick tip for business success. Here is what I wrote:

All great coaching tips inspire us to ACT. Action is key to success. My coaching tip is easily remembered by the A.C.T. acronym.

A is for Anticipate the Future Trends. When a small business owner is able to study his/her industry and anticipate the trends, then the business owner can take action to leverage opportunities and plan specific strategies.

Resurrecting My Blog Commitment

Sometimes analysis paralysis gets the best of me!

I have all of these wonderful ideas about what I want to blog about but then with all that I have on my plate – I over analyze the content, how it will be received and how it may or may not impact my target audience.

Well – this is why I love Easter (which is a mere 8 days away!)…because I believe this season reminds me that I can resurrect (if you will) my commitments to ALL the things that may have taken a back seat to “busyness” !
