    Be Careful Who You Take Medical Advice from Online

    These days everyone is an expert and they are quick to attempt to show the world just how much the know, but in reality they aren’t qualified to provide the advice they are offering up. There are no regulations in terms of fact checking online. Anyone can post anything. Anyone can upload a YouTube video that proclaims the Earth to be a flat triangle. Sadly, there will always be some people that believe if they see it on the internet it must be true. While some topics are harmless, some, like health and medicine for example, are topics that you really need to only discuss with true professionals. The internet…

    We Have Unlimited Potential to Succeed on Our Journey

    I was doing some thinking earlier today after watching a story on the news about how a woman went from being on welfare to building a million-dollar business. It was remarkable.

This made me sit back and realize that we truly do have unlimited potential. Every single one of us. Whatever it is that will make you happy or whatever it is that you…

I have been an avid eBayer (is that even a word?) since the beginning, so I am always checking out other options. I’ve noticed some…

    How to Scale Your Office Working with a Limited Budget

    Traditional office settings are not as common as they once were, mainly due to a lot of companies operating virtually in an effort to save money.
