The harsh reality of entrepreneurship is nothing more than fighting for freedom

Mid Life Celebration turned four yesterday. This was my first “expo”… (such a “rookie amateur”)

humble beginnings often seem embarrassing in retrospect

Entrepreneurship is living five to ten years of your life like most people won’t. So you can live the rest of them like most can’t.

Something about being able to schedule your priorities versus prioritizing your schedule.

Baby Boomers to the Economic Rescue

Baby Boomers to the economic rescue?

This Business Week writer, Nick Leiber, thinks so in his June 18 article, Entrepreneurship: The New Mid-Life Crisis

PS.  JFK once said, “The time to fix the roof is when the sun is shining”.

I say the time to think about retirement is a decade before it happens.
