What you sit up worrying about at 2 am?
The future, the present, money, retirement, getting old, or death?
How about waking up wondering if this is all there is to this life or I thought I would be in a different place than I am in now, why am I still here?
Many people today are asking these questions and the answers are wide and varying and usually not found without a lot of effort, money, and time.
Intellectually we know the answers, but at 2 in the morning, there is no intellect, it is all emotional. We begin to feel like we have failed.
I want you to know it is not too late, it is only the beginning of a whole new journey, a whole new opening to your life that will have you feeling inspired, motivated, and feeling the juice of life!
At YOU Seminars we provide the tools for you to discover what is important for you, what your purpose is, solutions for your future and your retirement, and overall wellbeing of this moment here and now. Join me on Thursday night for informational solutions to these questions.
This introductory seminar will show you how the Cornerstone Class can support you in creating the life you want now.

The answer to that question is no, you would not go to work for free. Not for long anyways.
So why does it seem to be okay that some people want to have your services for free? That it is assumed that your services are free for them?
In a world where more and more people are becoming entrepreneurs, it is inevitable that your friends will have services that you would like to use. And your friends would love to help you.
So if you want to keep friendships, please do not assume they will do their service for free.
Always ask what the cost is. If they will do it for free, that is great but do not expect them too.
Will your friends give you their valuable time for free? Yes they would and much more.
It is up to this relationship for everyone to not take the service for granted.
Imagine your client coming to see you for your service and she simply walks out the door after you supported her for an hour.
Or you are having coffee with your girlfriend and she wants to talk about what you charge by the hour for.
What in actuality happened? There was no value on the service provided.
Next time, have the conversation up front on the costs involved.
So when friendships are involved, do not assume you are getting their service for free, unless you do not want to keep that friendship.
You teach people how to treat you, so value the work you do, charge a fair price, and keep your friendships.
One last thought, what comes around goes around so if you take your friends for granted, someone will take you for granted.
That mortal man should feed upon the creature that feeds his lamp, and, like Stubb, eat him by his own light, as you may say; this seems so outlandish a thing that one must needs go a little into the history and philosophy of it.
It is upon record, that three centuries ago the tongue of the Right Whale was esteemed a great delicacy in France, and commanded large prices there. Also, that in Henry VIIIth’s time, a certain cook of the court obtained a handsome reward for inventing an admirable sauce to be eaten with barbacued porpoises, which, you remember, are a species of whale. Porpoises, indeed, are to this day considered fine eating. The meat is made into balls about the size of billiard balls, and being well seasoned and spiced might be taken for turtle-balls or veal balls. The old monks of Dunfermline were very fond of them. They had a great porpoise grant from the crown.
