5 Reasons why you SHOULD AVOID your Small and Big dreams.

I’m Alex. The fellow in the picture there. And this is my essay on Big Dreams. (well, the best version of essay I can manage after struggling through English class a LOT of years ago. I’m 46 for heaven’s sake. I know my arguments need work. [read more...

A mostly true story. A man on a plane, and the greatest gift he’d ever received.

Years ago I was talking to a man. In his 70s. On a plane.

pre-warning: I can guarantee that most of the details of this story are true. But some are iffy due only to my selective memory, not subterfuge. [read more...]

For parents: A scribbler, a Small Dreams Idea, and Life Wealth.

A few years ago, on a warm spring afternoon, I sat on the back deck in the sun with my 2 children. They were about 9 and 11 at the time I think. I had a scribbler out, as I’m wont to do...

Trying to figure out your new work, but have too many interests?

FB Live: This is one of the PRIMARY — and shockingly counter-intuitive — lessons I have learned that makes the BIGGEST difference for most of my clients.

Radio class on the show 'Uplifting Things' 

This is an interview-class I did with the amazing Zhyfhs Millicent about how to use 'Big Dreams' (bucket-list stuff) as well as Small-Dreams as a great foundation upon which to build life-direction - including income and career. You can listen to it here.
