When I initially contacted Steve Borek, I was having trouble relating to my Gen Y coworkers. Steve helped me look at my leadership style, develop an action plan and stick to benchmarks I set for myself. I went from feeling like Eore in Winnie the Pooh to being more dynamic and authentic in my workplace.

Everything you want or who you desire to become begins with a choice.

Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.

Cause I need to move, I need to wake up… I need to change, I need to shake up. ~ Melissa Etheridge > >>When clients hire me, things start to change. Their energy is different. That’s what it’s about. Changing your energy.

If you’re not having fun, you’re doing something wrong. ~ Groucho Marx >>> Every day I make someone laugh. It’s who I am. My oxygen. Hearing others laugh and smile gives me life.

OK, keep thinking about it. At some point, you or your idea will become irrelevant.
