  • April Feature: Work Smarter

    What’s does it mean to work smarter vs. to work harder? Let’s first take a look at what it means to be a hard worker?

    February Feature: Know Thyself

    Know Thyself
    By Alec Rains How does one truly know thyself? Think about a specific activity, profession, or sport you are skilled or proficient in.

Let’s face it, who doesn’t want to feel good about themselves? To be at the top of our game, whatever that might be, we need more than simply identifying our strengths. It is imperative to know our weaknesses if we ever wish to succeed in life. This is how we ....

    January Feature: Let It Go, Let It Flow

    Let It Go, Let It Flow
    By Alec Rains The end of 2016 brought discussion to the overwhelming ambivalence of a year gone by. There’s no disputing the compounding clusterof loss, hardships, and frustrations that begged the question: “2017 can only be better, right?”. Of course the answer is never as black and white as we would like. There’s no way to tell what the future holds for us; the year is literally just starting. Whether you had a good 2016 or not, it makes no sense to dwell on the past. Easier said than done, right? Of course it is. Since we can’t stop the clock from turning consider taking solace in the fact that a New Year marks a new beginning. ....

Join us Saturday Dec. 3rd at our Social Protection Seminar to discuss a number of the important social concerns ....
