I Know the Secret to Happiness…

I know the secret to happiness and it is easy; happiness is something every human being can attain.  I can sum it up in one simple word “gratitude”.  Folk like Oprah have been preaching about an attitude of gratitude for well over a decade, but it is 100% the truth and logical when you think […]

Self Confidence is a Skill!

Self Confidence has been a struggle for most of my life; lack of confidence has directly attributed to stumping my own career growth and has fueled fear to not follow my dreams.  During an interview process, what can tip the scales outside of your favor (if hiring is external to an organization or not mandated […]

The Priceless “Stuff”

I am not going to lie, I have a lot of stuff and some of it is pretty nice, top quality, brand names, expensive and et cetera. Since being a teenager to my mid 30s, I tried my best to keep up with the Jones, or at least try to appear that I was keeping […]
