"A great man is always willing to be little." - Ralph Waldo Emerson Often times when people make it big, heads and egos get big as well.

People who see it as such don’t need to be boastful or arrogant about their achievements. They’re aware and appreciate their successes but don’t need to r ..read more

 “When I meet with the founders of a new company, my advice is always, ‘Do fewer things,’ it’s true of partnerships, marketing opportunities, anything that’s taking up your time. The vast majority of things are distractions, and very few really matter to your success.” - Evan Williams Have you ever heard the phrase, “you can have it all, just not all at once?” I’ve found that the same philosophy can be applied to the number of tasks and to-dos you have going on in your life: you can do it all, just not all at once. Our lives are filled with clutter. Whether our dishes are piling up in th ..read more

As kids, we think we can do anything, whether it’s growing up to be a veterinarian or believing that you could fly. Whatever your belief was, the best part is that you truly believed it was possible. As we grow up, we seem to lose that unwavering confidence in ourselves. We experience failures, criticisms, and even negative self talk when things don’t go our way ..read more
