New School Year, New Freshman Clichés

As I am now coming up on my final year in college, I keep finding myself recollecting on the many things that I have learned thus far, not only in class, but also interacting with my peers whether it be: at a sporting event, at a party, or maybe just an event on campus. There are many things I wish people would have told me before coming to college like, “Don’t carry a map of campus around with you to each class,” people can definitely tell you’re a freshman, or “You don’t have to try so hard to fit in.” College has given

What Does the New Health Care Law Mean to Me?

Sonia Dent RN, MSN, MBA

Certainly by today you have been have seen on the news, read something in print, or been involved in a conversation with someone discussing the controversial enacted health care law. And the constant question on everyone’s mind is, “How is this law going to affect me?” Whether you are a child, senior, business or healthcare provider, this law touches every American. Some changes take place immediately while others will be put into place over the next few years.


Stronger Than Yesterday "Life, Leadership, & Money"

There are so many attributes that make up a great leader; integrity, work ethic, perseverance, and attitude just to name a few. However, I feel like the single most important quality a leader can have is a strong desire for self-development. Leadership is a lot like a golf swing in that it will never be perfected. In the Christmas of 2010 my wife and I were celebrating our first Christmas in our new home about two hours from where we both grew up. I was so excited because I had gotten her an IPAD (although in hindsight the time she spent making a wonderful dinner compared to the time she spent playing angry birds may have made that purchase a mistake). Anyway, when she opened it up she burst into tears talking about how blessed we are and how handsome I am. Ok I made that last part up but she really did love the present.



Slow Down to Speed Up "Life, Leadership, & Money"

I have put a name on a disease many of us have felt but just can’t quite describe. How many times in the past year, month, week, heck even day have you said, “I can’t get anything done because I’ve got too much to do!” I call this Overwhelmed Paralysis.
