    RANT STOP Doing What Works!

    The "Tried-and-True" is harder than the Wild West, and I’ll prove it. We live in a world that’s obsessed with pushing everyone through a narrow, “proven” path.

    A little bit of background: I've just sold my first business after running it for 2 years. Not "FU" money yet, but it's some good padding to think about the next opportunity. One thing I'll say is I've learned a LOT through this process, and after selling immediately began looking into...

    PEOPLE Embellishing Stories for the Sake of Simplicity

    Probably sweating this too much, but... In light of recent 'Guru Witch-Hunt' threads on the Forum, it got me thinking about my own presentation to others; namely involving stories told. I'm fairly guilty of Embellishing Stories - not necessarily for ill intent, but for the Sake of Simplicity...
