As nice as it would be if everything could go the way we wanted it to in life, we all know that most of the time it just isn’t quite that simple.
However, let’s assume that you are given the chance to ask for one change to your way of working. What would you change about your working life?
Running a business for the first time can be a daunting task, and many business owners are concerned about the typical “ups and downs” that accompany many small business start ups.

Probably my favorite strange but true fact of all time involves a sheet of paper and the Moon.
Simply put, how many times would you have to fold a (giant) sheet of paper to reach the Moon? Your first thought might be that it would take millions of folds to get anywhere near it. However, the real answer is that you would only need to fold it 42 times to reach the Moon.
I had an interesting conversation with some parents outside of my little girl’s school today. While I was waiting to pick her up a few other moms and dads were hanging around too.
We got to talking about how the great majority of the kids these days are part of a one child family. There are about 15 kids in my daughter’s class and we could only think of 3 or 4 of them that have brothers or sisters. Why do think that is?
We looked a few days ago at the idea of adults moving back in with their parents due to financial issues.
However, what about looking at the same issue from the angle of the parents now? What should you do if you are a parent and one or more of your kids tells you that they need to move back home because of money problems?
