Protecting the Kids

Hard to believe I’m writing another post about an abusive professional athlete, but if you believe in living by the principles of prosperity, there are more serious issues to be talked about here.

The Real Lessons from Ray Rice

Every situation, no matter how negative or horrific, offers us learning lessons and teachable moments. The latest scandal about the Ray Rice elevator video is a case in point. But what I see from most of the media, public officials, and social media is missing the mark. People are talking about the length of the suspension, if and when the NFL saw the tape, and whether Roger Goodell should keep his job.

The Power of Your Packaging

In my last condo, they had a security guard who was a woman, about five feet tall who weighed about 300 pounds. Obviously her health situation made it difficult to get out of a chair, and she would have been hard-pressed to chase down an intruder or subdue an attacker. Yet she still was able […]

Would They Burn Your Jersey?

So you have customers, even fans. You have a tribe of devotees who appreciate your work and follow you. But how much passion are you really creating? The recent mania over where basketball superstar LeBron James would sign reminds me of the hysteria the first time he made his decision and went from Cleveland to […]
