Vol. 2, Iss. 8 | April 2021 “Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great.” ~ Orison Swett Marden AUTHOR, PUBLISHER Thought for the Month April 2021 “Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities.

Vol. 2, Iss. 6 | Febrary 2021 When You Look in the Mirror When I look at the future, it’s so bright it burns my eyes. ~ Oprah Winfrey Thought for the Month February 2021 When you look in the mirror, who do you see in the reflection? I’m not referring to your facial features like your eyes, nose, and mouth. I’m talking about looking deeper into the mirror. Do you catch a glimpse of your honesty, respectfulness, empathic nature, and servitude towards others? Do those “others” see you as you see yourself or do they [...]

Vol. 2, Iss. 2 | October 2020 This Friday, finish your work and be done. Look forward to the weekend and have some fun! ~ Luis Thought for the Month October 2020 Have you stopped to think that there are 60 hours in the weekend? That sounds like a lot, so why is it that when Monday morning comes around, we find ourselves asking, “Where did the weekend go!” We look at the two highly-anticipated days, and we can’t figure out what we did!
