Are you between an introvert and extrovert? (I feel that way often!) Then you might be an ambivert. I like to think of this kind info (vs. a label) as another tool in helping me succeed. The more we know...

Did you know Christopher Swan, the host of My Big Story shares ideas, stories, and now updates about his adventure, each week? It's worth the look (and it's free!).

Use your own experiences to grow and help others. This is a great idea!

Sometimes it helps to hear how others work through adversity.

We all struggle with adversity in one way or another. That’s one of those fundamental facts that binds us all together. Why else would we resonate so deeply with stories of perseverance and victory…

Have you ever sat down on the couch to watch a show or two and, somehow, found yourself on the tail end of a 5-hour Netflix marathon? It’s ok. You can be honest. We’ve all been there. In fact, the…
