Good at Life?

I like to think that I give pretty good advice. Sometimes people ask for it, sometimes….they don’t, but I still offer it. I’m not saying I’m a guru at life or have had anything massively profound happen to make me an expert, but I listen and when it’s appropriate, I share my experiences in case that helps others in their […]

My obsession with the color purple

Nope, I’m not talking about the book, movie or even Oprah this time. I’m literally just talking about the color purple (and its friends, lavender, lilac, berry, etc.) My wardrobe and accessory collection have been infected with a case of the color purple. And it was totally unintentional. And fortunately, being infected with the color purple does not involve a […]

Death of the phone call

When I got my iPhone a few months ago, I picked a plan with the lowest number of minutes but highest data package. Someone I’m related to asked why and I answered without thinking, “because I never make phone calls, the minutes will never be fully used.” I thought I was crazy but according to a New York Times article, […]

Retirement is an artificial milestone produced by the industrial age notion of a ‘job’ where you work for an employer for 45 years in return for money when you retire. That world doesn’t exist […]

How do you want to live?

There is more to life than making money and more to taking charge of your life than becoming an entrepreneur. Before you start doing anything, take the time to discover how you want to live each day/ What we are talking about here at JOB is more than not having a job or being an entrepreneur. It means taking control […]

Learn Attraction!

Leaders are attractive people. Not so much physical like being movie star handsome but in the sense that they are people you are attracted to; people you want to be with..or be like. Where does that attraction come from? Is it some innate quality that they were born with? Or did they learn it. Most of us are brainwashed into […]

Getting out of your job takes training.

Entrepreneurship it’s a long word and one that isn’t much taught when you grow up today. One hundred years ago, you didn’t have to teach it because that was the way almost everybody lived and how they supported themselves and raised their families. In those days you were the man. You developed skills or products and sold them for money. […]
