    A CEO impressed upon us (for time mgmt) that “if it doesn’t move the business forward … don’t do it”.

    Never be afraid to share your idea. If it’s any good, people won’t steal it, you’ll have to shove it down their throats.

    Lani – Love the article (was looking forward to it). I like Jay’s in the comment section. “Have fun.” I truly don’t think any work should seem like it’s not fun. Sure there are moments, but those moments are fleeting. You have to demand fun from your work. If it won’t give it to you, sometimes you have to slap work around the head a few times and make it relent.

    I heard something the other day that really got to me.

    Are you worthy of what you’re getting out of your work? If your work is not producing results that you’re worthy of then it’s time to raise the outcome to your standards.

    As usual, AG comes up with love for common sense and ties it to business advice: It is free, and up to us to take it.

    “Have fun.” Jay Thompson, Not playing favorites here , just sayin’… :)

    Had I known you were taking screen shots, I would have ditched the Shrek avatar. Oh well. Also, If I wasn’t worried about giving you a big head, I’d agree with Ken’s ‘insanely clever’ comment. :)

    Set goals and hold yourself accountable to them

    Track where you business is coming from. If it is producing results put more add more $ to it.

    If it isn’t then STOP.

    What a great idea for an article, Lani! It was so much fun reading through all of the replies. Lots of pearls of wisdom on this page.

    And…just to add a few giggles to the mix – advice from a very “old-world” stepmother – “when all else fails, marry a rich man.” (hey don’t cringe – I said she was old world, which is older than old skool and old fashioned combined! lol)
