The world has felt “yucky” lately to me.  It started with a bad dream – no, a nightmare, several months back where people went into crowded areas – for no reason, other than anger, frustration and confusion with what’s going on in our world – in our communities, and started killing.  I was hoping it was just a nightmare and […]

  • Are You Playing Chess or Checkers? December 6, 2016
    Recently, my 8-year-old daughter Devyn has been inquiring about purchasing a chess board to practice since her school started a chess club. In the same week, my mentor and President of the John Maxwell Team, Paul Martinelli, posed a question to me about our business. His question was simply: Tom, with your business, are you […]
  • Parent-Teacher Conferences: A Must for Student Success November 29, 2016
    When my children were growing up I looked forward each year to the first parent conference.

When my first child was in kindergarten, we were notified that we were scheduled […]
  • The Power of Practicing Volatile Situations November 22, 2016
    You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.   It was my first day as a teacher at an urban school, and I had a plan.  It was a foolproof plan, inspired by hundreds of hours of studying education strategies and techniques.  I read The First Days of School by Wong and […]
  • How Tight is Your Rubber Band? November 2, 2016
    As a team, we are studying John Maxwell’s the 15 Laws of Invaluable Growth. My favorite law John teaches in this best-selling book is the Law of the Rubber Band.

  • Search Engine Optimization – Make Your Site Load Faster November 29, 2016
    A commonly overlooked aspect of search engine optimization is site speed, or how fast your website loads. Sites that load slowly often get lower rankings in the search engines, and for good reason. People don’t have any time to waste online, and get frustrated when they must wait for a site to load. The search engines […]

  • When Local Businesses Market Globally November 2, 2016
    When small businesses market globally, they lose. They can’t compete with the resources of international companies and there’s no reason they should market to users who aren’t in their target audience.
