Have You Heard of VidAngel?

  The other night our family snuggled in for a chance to watch something fun on NETFLIX. As we scrolled through the options, our kids had seen a majority of the limited “Family Movies” section, even multiple times, so we went in search of something new and fun to watch together. After scrolling and previewing our options for nearly 30 minutes we came to the realization that the few good movies we’d already seen, others were too much cartoon based and uninteresting, and all the rest, meaning 99/100 movies, were truly inappropriate for our kids to see. So we went

The Promise of Compliments

How often do you give others a compliment? There is no quicker way to engage someone, a complete stranger, and gain a fast friend, than to offer a sincere compliment. I hope you enjoy this video with my humorous examples of giving compliments to random strangers and how it made their day better and makes my life happier.

The memories of you bring tears of

  A few weeks ago I posted a blog called, “The Promise United Never Made”. Wow did that stir up some strong feelings from the opposers, critics, and posers out there!  Haha. My whole point was simply that United Airlines only had it as a GOAL to make the customer experience be positive, that they never made any kind of PROMISE to us. Many people agreed with my assessment and the change in language, and how that shifts the strength of power in our words. And then others showed up shouting how promises can’t be guaranteed, it depends on the circumstance,

The Promise of Congruence On & Off Stage

When I was a kid I met my hero, a basketball player who is in the Hall of Fame now, and at the time was the epitome of all I wanted to be in life. I collected his jerseys, wore the same brand shoes as him (before that was a thing), and collected every basketball card ever made about him. The time came to meet my hero.  He was there to sign our memorabilia. I went up to him, asked if he would be willing to sign my stuff… And he refused. He said that he was under contract not
