The Solopreneur DreamJob


Just like you, I’ve done many jobs in my life. I’ve worked illegally and underage at a scrap yard. I’ve interviewed rock stars. I’ve mowed grass. I’ve helped people heal and thrive. I’ve even made movies. Since I’m the type who likes to dream up various theories, I’ve thought a bunch about jobs, careers and [...]

Lead Yourself into Work that Matters

The Freshman and Steeled Tipped Boot of NFA


As a teacher and creativity coach, I sometimes need to square up and kick hard with the steel tipped boot of NFA. It can be kind of harsh. But it’s always backed with love.  It’s true. Sometimes people need their hand held. Sometimes people need a nudge in the right direction. Or a cheerleader in [...]

A Magical Element of Music


Tonight I am taking a major trip on a musical time machine. It was July, 1985, when my folks dropped me and few friends off in the parking lot at The Spectrum in Philadelphia somewhere around noon. We simply had to get there very early.  We baked in the 90+ degree direct sunlight all day [...]
