Harnessing the power of NO

Every once in awhile, someone is going to say no to you. No to the sale, no to the job, no to something. You can walk away and do nothing, feeling dejected or even mad. Or you can take advantage of the situation and turn it into a future yes or possibly another opportunity. All […]

For success, don’t postpone joy

A big part of success is having a positive attitude and being happy. Really, it is. When you are happy and stress free, you can see more clearly and recognize more opportunities to succeed.

I spent yesterday afternoon at YES Prep in Houston: giving away two more laptops, talking to students about professions, speed networking, and more.
