I love watching Cesar Milan, The Dog Whisperer. And though he is sharing his thoughts and experience with dogs, much of what he says relates to humans too, including this one – you can’t train against nature. Some dogs are born to run, others to sit in our laps. Confine the herding or hunting dogs … Continue reading

Don’t Settle

So many of us settle. We take whatever life gives us and think that is all there is. We settle for average relationships, average employees, average service and average products.

Go For Bold!

You were born awesome. I love saying that. I love seeing people’s faces when they hear it.

When I Grow Up I Want To Be…

This post is from Kate Forte, a senior at AZ State College, majoring in Event Planning.
