Often as a parent, I insist on our son telling me the answer to the really important issues. If he can’t tell me what I believe is crystal clear and blindingly obvious, then he doesn’t understand it yet. And telling him will not help him understand it. Ever.
Insight: Telling an answer only lets people know it. It rarely helps them understand it. Knowing and understanding are not the same. Period.
One of the secrets I’ve learned is that it’s better to simply get started and do, rather than worry and wait.
Yeah, at risk with a business card as “unprofessional” as this is that people won’t take you seriously.
However, what’s also at risk with some really slick, professional business cards is they will also get neglected, not because they aren’t professional, but rather because they’re boring.

And maybe if all the critical tools and resources – marketing, legal, human resources, community relations, public relations, media relations, finance, advertising, hiring, organizational structure, vision, mission, brand, etc – have long been established.
Maybe, but, if you’ve ever dreamed of being an entrepreneur, you are in for a rude awakening.
Same goes for health.
Here’s to hoping your phone never rings in 2010 with this, “Honey, it’s for you. It’s your wake-up call.”
