In last week’s Podcast I answered a question from Art: Hello Dan, recently I read 48 Days and No More Mondays. Great books! Like you I'm a car guy! I worked as an ASE certified technician for 6+yrs then opened up a used car lot which let to a bankruptcy (have to admit fixing cars and selling them are completely different). Currently I work for the state and earn only $40,000 a year; I feel like Read more »

Someone alerted me to this recently and I just had to pass it along. Would you like some of those great lines to kiss up to your boss? Here….let me carry those boxes.

I had a “friend” once ask me how on earth could I be content with being just a housewife? She and her husband ran a successful business together and they had raised one “perfect” son who didn’t interfere much with their daily schedules.  I have to admit I was a bit put off by her question and probably stammered a bit as I tried to answer nicely (our husbands were friends) without punching Read more »

Procrastination is the biggest hurdle that I had to overcome in pursuing my vision. I prayed about it, talked about it, listened to encouraging messages for inspiration and received wise counsel from mentors, but I continued to struggle with procrastination.

My left brake handle was acting up yesterday. And since we had a bicycle shop just down the street, it seemed prudent to have the bicycles checked out. The mechanic was able to troubleshoot my brake problem quickly. And, as good mechanics do, he was able to find other issues that neither Debbie nor I would have found, and fix them before they caused more serious troubles down the road.TimBishop

As he worked on the two bikes, we talked about our tour, since he was quite interested in how things were going. When we admitted to our deficiency with mechanical matters, he made this comment: “Anyone who goes on a tour of this magnitude should be able to completely tear down and rebuild his own bike.”
