Two thousand and nine hope is here! Two thousand and nine and rates are low! Two thousand and nine and ...
Early in 2007 I wrote "Will I succeed? Will I survive 2007?" It didn't take much to make it relevant today. I'm still not Carnac the Magnificent! Personally, to promote my books and services I belong to and participate in several networking groups. Today Active Rain dominates my audience and I do...
As the mortgage scandal continues to evolve, as fingers keep pointing, as facts are ignored, as politicians, bureaucrats, and other crooks struggle to pass the buck and befuddle the public with male bovine droppings!

I started this morning reading a friends blog. My friend is the epitome of The American Dream, his story is a true inspiration. But, my friend hasn't been here through tough economic and social times, even though he's known real tough times. My friend wasn't here in 1973 when money was regionalis...
There is a TV commercial for a new Guru that ask if you want to succeed, well who doesn't? All thing considered I've been in one form or another of the people business since I was 14 years old back in 1962 and I have yet to meet anyone that wants to fail. Wanting is not enough!
