Lessons from the handicapped

A while ago, I made this YouTube video pasted below. Funny thing is, I still have the same opinion today. The only difference is that now I am an interviewer/manager. Not only do I feel my statement below is still true, but I want to stress what really impressed me about this individual. I feel that the video below is good, but if I were to do it over, I would mention that anyone has the ability to impress me like this individual. I feel that this fellow had passion, enthusiasm and a level of zeal to do a good job. That is the trick! Not too long ago, I was a server at a restaurant. In case you didn't know, a server's income in the USA is 100% dependent on tips. So performance is dire to earn and income/survival. In essence, the job is similar to entrepreneurship. And I noticed that when I brought these mentioned attributes above into the workplace, my tips would increase. I am no longer a server, but these same principles apply today in my current occupation.

Yawn, Brexit did nothing

Hello everyone,

It just so happens that The British Left the EU and we are still alive! Do you remember the mass hysteria last week? With national elections around the corner, I would like to take minute and remind everyone that the national media makes a living off of our emotions. Don't give in to that, don't change your behaviors based off of emotions, continue to learn from history and think critically.

If you turn on left wing news, you hear their own summarized version of events that fit their bias; likewise with the right wing media outlets. I encourage freedom of speech and critical thinking. Daily reminder, If a cop shoots someone it's possible that it's because that person didn't listen to the cop: It's also possible that the cop made a mistake. Until you know the... (wait for it) "FACTS" please hold off on making a firm opinion. It's very possible that you don't know all the information because you weren't there.


This was your dail…
