Think Big. Act Small.

Last week, I again had the pleasure of hosting the Vermont Council on World Affairs. This time, we had a dynamic group of students from Africa studying entrepreneurship and business,  and I introduced them to the quantum leap concept and course material.

What Do You Really Want?

When I was in my early twenties, I had my mind on money and money on my mind. I believed that once I reached a certain amount of annual income, I would feel a certain way.

Why I Hate Goals

A few days ago, Hallie and I were prepping for my weekly training for our real estate expansion business CEOs. It’s the end of the year, so Hallie suggested we talk about goals. I quickly replied, “I hate goals!” Hallie asked why. I replied and then she said, “Well, maybe you should just do a rant on the call about …
