In honor of this special day, I thought I'd share with you some great April Fools' Day pranks.   In 1957, the BBC ran a segment about the Swiss spaghetti harvest. They claimed that due to a mild winter and the "virtual disappearance of the spaghetti weevil," Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper crop of spaghetti. The segment featured footage of pe

Yesterday I celebrated my pictured Birthday   Satchel Paige once said "How old would you be if you didn't know how old you was?" How profound! Feel free to ask yourself :) I would be 40, when I qualified for the Boston Marathon.   I don't dwell on the ever mounting number as I know I'm in the process of becoming a Tribal Elder and that I've notched

I started teaching last week and in the first class I always rant about the process they will be going through. I emphatically and passionately make a plea for each student to approach the class with an open heart and an open mind.   If they are able to be vulnerable, each student will learn about themselves in their journey of building a business
