Being Thankful for the Enlightenment…

Thanksgiving was a great day for family, friends, and the local police department in Oberlin.  Thanksgiving evening the upper respiratory experience returned after abating for a few days.  The cough syrup experience resulted in being escorted the last several blocks home from Beachwood by the Oberlin Police Department.  It will take an act of God for me […]

The Empower Excellence Experience is…

This has been long in coming, and it may still change.  But, this is a succinct presentation of what I do with my company Empower Excellence, LLC.  I know it will still need explanation, but I wanted to share it with everyone today because it represents my work towards Personal Sustainability…your comments and questions are […]

Spending Time with Gratitude!

So many folks think that Personal Sustainability is all about the Power of Attraction or Abundance.  While that is a part of Personal Sustainability, it is not what I am focusing on with my Personal Sustainability work.  In fact, the focus is on our relationship with money and how that affects our Personal Sustainability.  The main […]

The Root of the Concern…

The butterflies are back even if only in the graphic of the roots of a tree.  Butterflies are important to me in many respects as they are a symbol of transformation.  They have a short lifespan, but they maximize their time on Earth.  They begin as caterpillars, not really knowing the glory that will be […]

SOIL…

“I’m sad as hell and I’ not going to fake it anymore”  These are the first words of a new book by Woody Tasch.  It was his first book SLOW MONEY…that led to my total involvement in the local, healthy, organic, sustainable food movement.  His new book SOIL/2017:  NOTES TOWARDS THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF […]

Let’s Talk About the Selfish Basics!

No matter where you are on your path, make sure that the basics needed for a sustainable life are included in your plan.  Sleep is one of the greatest healers, and we many times carry with us the stigma from our parents about sleep issues.  I know as a child I was always told that […]

As a Participant in Life, Be the Light

So you are back, and on a Friday!  You have accepted to RSVP to life, and now you are building your Personal Sustainability from the ground up.  You know when Maslow created his Pyramid of Needs he started with the basics of food, clothing, and shelter.  Very wise since there have been those I have […]

Simplicity is Found in Nature!

Every once n a while, as we talk about money and personal sustainability, I like to mention that a great money relationship can be built at very low cost.  How?  By learning to be in nature.   It is a magical trip even if it is into your backyard.  It is amazing what has been provided […]

Personally Sustainable? Show me!

Let’s start with food!  Everyone needs to eat.  What we choose to eat is up to us.  Money 💰 helps determine how we think about food.  Right or wrong, it plays a part!  It is not up to me to tell you what is right for you.  It is up to me to share what I […]

When You Have Joy…You Have it All!

Fall is spectacular!  I love fall!  The temperatures, usually, are more moderate.  It is my season being a Scorpio!  As I sit here in my home business office, I see beautiful trees glistening in the 72 degree temperatures.  Leaves are beginning to fall.  Everything is happening the way nature intends it to happen.  I am overwhelmed […]
