I Love My CPU ‘Cuz My Friends Live In It


When I launched an online business in January of this year, (Business Training Team) life changed suddenly.

Obstacles Are Not The End of the Story


I love stories of overcomers. I have met so many personally that I think I want to do a series of articles based on interviews with some of those folks.

Most of us know, at least in theory, that the pursuit of perfection is harmful, and rarely achievable anyway. So do we just settle for mediocrity? No, there’s another answer — pursue excellence!

My husband and I love to ride our BMW motorcycles. One day I was riding alone on a country road. Everything was perfect – I could smell spring in the air; it was one of those glorious days for riding. Then, the ride became bumpy and I struggled to keep control, wildly looking around […]
