Lessons From A Basketball Referee

The weekend is almost over but I hope that you are enthused about the upcoming week. If we are friends on social media you have probably seen that I am a basketball referee.  This job was a challenge that I took on a year ago just to stay involved with sports.  I really did not think that being a basketball referee would help me grow as a person and as an entrepreneur.   I never thought about how focused you have to be as a referee until my first game when every basketball Mom in the stands was calling me everything but the son of God lol.  It really is demanding task to manage and control a basketball game.  Much like the life of an entrepreneur it take very thick skin and laser focus to manage your dream!   Let's be great today! 1 Down!  Next time you go to a basketball game take it easy on the referees! If your friends need some rhino skin or focus, I would greatly appreciate it if you would forward to your friends and share on Facebook or Twitter.

Would You Roast Your Grandmother?

  Question of the day: Would you roast your Grandmother? I had the daunting task today to give a speech roasting my grandmother!  Honestly, it wasn't that difficult since my Gram has given me a lifetime of hilarious situations.  Gram is 83 years young and still bossing me around lol!  I wouldn't trade her for anything in the world.  If you are blessed enough to have your grandparents in your life please cherish every moment.  Check out my roast of Foustine Childs aka Gram. Let's be great today! 1 Down!

Why People Fail to Understand Others “Lack of understanding concerning others is s recurrent source of tension in our society.  I once heard an attorney say, “Half of all the controversies and conflicts that arise among people are caused not by differences of opinion or an inability to agree, but by the lack of understanding of one another.” If we could reduce the number of misunderstandings, the courts wouldn’t be as crowded, there would be fewer violent creimes, the divorce rate would go down, and the amount of everyday stress most people experience would drop dramatically.” John C. Maxwell A Short Course in Human Relations The least important word: I The most important word: We The two most important words: Thank you. The three most important words: All is forgiven. The four most important words: What is your opinion? The five most important words: You did a good job! The six most important words: I want to understand you better.
