Okay – I absolutely never set out to find some wealthy guy to provide for me.  In fact, if you ask my mother, you’ll hear about the tattooed biker, the penniless musician and the art teacher who pretty much lived in his van (did I just admit that??) Falling head over heels in love with […]

Today’s 5 minute Small Step: Is this the best use of my thoughts of right now?

The first small step we shared was constantly asking yourself, “Is this the best use of my time?”  That led me to ask this question throughout the day:  Is this the best use of my thoughts right now?  The mind averages sixty thousand thoughts per day, and some experts estimate that 80% of these are […]
