From the lovable essayist and featured commentator on the 60 Minutes Television Program in the United States.
I’ve learned that money does not buy class.
I’ve learned that when you are in love it shows.
I’ve learned that being kind is more important than being right.
I’ve learned that the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.
I’ve learned that you should never say no to a gift from a child.

Volume 1: Number 5: September/October 2001

In June, I shared with an audience I was speaking to the following principles and lessons. These are universal principles that have helped me overcome many of my own challenges, most notably, overcoming a 30 year severe stuttering disability. It is my hope and intention that you will take one or two ideas that you can relate to and apply them to your own life.

Volume 1: Number 2: March/April 2001

In 1973 I went to work as a trainee hairdresser for the world famous Vidal Sassoon Company. I was just starting out in the business and I was responsible for washing the hair, sweeping the floor, making the coffee…all the good jobs. more

Volume 1: Number 1: January/February 2001

January – the start of a fresh new year. This is a wonderful time to take stock and reflect on the year gone by, the triumphs you achieved, the time you shared with family and friends, the good choices you made in business. But in order to grow and develop both personally and professionally, you also have to look back at and acknowledge the things that challenged you, the things that did not go so well.
There is nothing wrong with setbacks, in fact, I believe that if we don’t have obstacles to overcome along the way we won’t learn and grow. Thomas Watson, the founder of IBM, once said, “ If you want to increase your rate of success, you better be prepared to increase your rate of failure.” more
