Watching strangers come to my son’s encouragement and coaching, knowing he’s new to this skateboarding world, and mentoring him along, it was inspiring seeing these kids teaching powerful life lessons without realizing it. And then – he dropped in! Didn’t fall. Elated he went again and again until it was fairly easy. Eventually his new skate pals looked at the board he’d received from a friend as a hand-me-down and they suggested he needed something a little better if he was committing to skating.
Since he had taken the initiative to try something I never dared to in my…

It’s the middle of August, which means you have 90 days to get in front of everything you are going to close and get paid for this year. Silly as that sounds; it is the reality. We really need to get ready for the sprint to the wire that is the next 90 days and we can start with knowing where we are. By now you know what is going to close in August, or pretty close to it. You also have a good idea of what September is going to look like. This will get you ¾ of the way to your annual numbers.
