A Poem For Rockstars

A Poem For Rockstars

I always say, I don’t believe in “God”, because I am not religious. But I do believe. And I definitely believe in this. ———– Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.

We were in Las Vegas to talk to each other about business and social media. And to connect. Don’t get me wrong. Twitter, Facebook,…

Why Drinking Is Good For Business

Why Drinking Is Good For Business

Something funny and very Freudian happened while writing this. I noticed a typo. Had I not, the title of this post might have been published as “Why Drinking is GOD For Business” instead of ‘good’. Knowing me, this would be a perfectly plausible headline, but let us not get into God or Freud today and focus on the drinking and business part of my advice for you. God and Freud are very last season anyway. Today, a simple answer to an important question. Question: How do I start my business? Answer: Start drinking. Are you kidding me? No, I am not kidding. Just drink. If you don’t like alcohol, I think you’re a bit odd and I’d recommend you give it a shot. No punn intended. But I’m not trying to get you drunk here. Coffee, tea, lemonade, soda, water, or any other liquid people have a habit of sharing…
