August 2012



Happy Friday!!  Can you believe August is over?  For me, September 1st initiates fall which is my favorite time of year.  I love the leaves turning, kids back in school, and all the fun events that happen this time of year.  


With the changes listed above as well as other things in life, you can often get overwhelmed with joy or the simple challenges of change.  So, this month's perspective comes from that place of change and looks at What Will You Allow to Derail You?  


Of course there is the Featured Business which happens to be an organization that is near and dear to my heart, the Featured Book that reading it has become a daily practice and upcoming Events and Programs.  I've also added a little bonus

Business Article for those of you who have your own business.



Have a fabulous September and look for additional coaching tips and announcements throughout the month.


Blessings and gratitude,

Business Article:

Are You A Business Manager?

I recently spoke with the CFO of a large local firm and we discussed the differences between management of small and large business.  We discussed not only the tools and methods for managing both but also the different metrics to consider.


From our discussion it was confirmed that whether its big or small business, the way a business is effectively managed is essentially the same.  The truth is that all businesses need to keep an eye their cash flow, revenues, expenditures and profit margins...
