Get the Grease
The squeaky wheel gets the grease Sometimes the hardest part is the ask. The ask for the business. The ask for the date. The ask for the opportunity. It’s awkward, it’s uncomfortable, it’s anxiety ridden…. It’s all of those things wrapped up in one. It all derives from the fear of denial, the fear of…
On The Take or Get Took
Sometimes to avoid getting took you gotta be on the take. This is not to say you must take advantage of people to avoid being taken advantage of. What it is, is a realization that when you are worried about yourself and moving towards your goals you are on the take. When you are worried…

Some people have contagious energy. Contagious energy is powerful. When they are happy and laughing, you are happy and laughing. When they are mad or upset, you are mad or upset. They move crowds with their emotions. If you are one of those people that possess that contagious energy, take note of it next time…
