Building the Fundamentals

Photo by DeviantArt user karwahe

There’s a part of me that wants to drop everything I’m doing on a daily basis, give it up, and do something that truly makes me happy (or that I think will make me happy). I want to forget about the past and everything that has happened and start a clean […]

Inspired by an article featured on Dumb Little Man. Try answering these [7 questions] for yourself and be true to yourself while thinking about the questions and answering them with sincerity. It’s hard to sometimes be “real” with yourself, but honesty is the best policy. […]

You’re Not Ready to Succeed Until You Believe

What Makes a Leader?

Lately, I’ve been trying to make a change. A change that requires me to take in and surround myself with more positive, inspirational, and motivational things. By things I mean people, listening to and watching people’s success stories, reading the advice from other successful business and entrepreneurial minded individuals, and keeping positive thoughts running through […]
