Just over four years ago, I sold a company I had been involved in starting 25 years earlier. Over the many years I ran that company, we considered mergers & acquisitions as a way to grow. I ended up not pursuing that avenue for growth because I had heard too many stories of M&A deals […]

He asked, “When is your birthday?” She replied, “Well, there’s my legal birthday and there’s the day I celebrate.” She explained she was born on April 1, but “that’s the worst birthday because you’re supposed to be happy but […]

Several times after speeches people have told me things I said (or written in my book) are things they have also learned in AA’s Twelve Step program of recovery: Progress, not perfection. Early on when I was a participant in the Strategic Coach Program®, founder Dan Sullivan preached the importance of focusing on progress, not […]
