Joy @ Work
The rare appearance of joy at work is so painfully exquisite that we may actually experience joy as a moment of terror. (You’ve just been given the project of your dreams… now you have to perform!) It opens us to all our possibilities and yet casts a shadow of comparison across all our other moments. (I’ve never been here before… I hope I don’t do something stupid or miss an important detail that could kill the project… and my job!)
Joy brings an intimation of death and mortality. This joy will pass as all others have before it. Laughter catches in our throat because we refuse to accept the corollary of joy, the soul-enriching poignancy of loss.
The experience of joy in the workplace means we are made more vulnerable to loss in a corporate culture where loss is the first bullet point on the important list of things not to be experienced.
We feel there must be something wrong with the natural vulnerability that accompanies joy and refuse to harvest those moments which bring nothing to us but pure experience itself, where even failure is welcomed as the salt that gives flavor to the feast.

Peer Advisory Board Website Introduction
Face-to-Face or Virtual Peer Advisory Boards
Being Alone at the Top is difficult. Who can you talk with to get answers that keep you up all night. No unbiased peers, family, or friends to sound out on issues, no one to give support when difficult decisions have to be made. Imagine the difference an advisory board would make for you and your business whether it is a face to face or virtual Peer Advisory Board.
A Peer Advisory Board solves the inaccessibility of expertise and solutions for small business owners. Non-competitive business owner giving support and their experience of what works in a sounding board.
It’s like having your own mastermind group that helps you grow your business. Our Virtual Boards are easy – any place, on any device. Face-to-face peer boards are only currently in the Chicago and Phoenix metro areas.
ZERO to ONE Amazon Description
You might think this is going to be about computer code, the binary system of ones and zeros, and how technology is going to help manage our planetary civilization. In a sense you’d be right, but not in the way you might think. In another sense, and perhaps quite literally, the internet is an interface into such a system that is driven by both emotion and logic, with the capability to engage people, places and things for various purposes.
There is another binary connection that, through the choice of ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ molds our reality on a moment to moment basis. It, too, is an emotion and logic driven system. The two are nearly inseparable and often in conflict.
We ask questions and ponder paths, imagining possibilities for creating a sustainable world. Current quantum theory indicates we have more capacity for becoming self-aware and managing our reality better; individually influencing a collective consciousness.
