Hold Your Head High and Your Expectations Higher

by / ⠀Blog Entrepreneurship / May 8, 2015

 Reality – Expectations = Happiness That’s the formula right? If you got out of bed today expecting every person you looked at to punch you in the face, then you could probably have a pretty great day when no one actually did that to you, huh?

by / ⠀Blog Entrepreneurship / April 22, 2015

You don’t have to follow the rules. Not all rules are worth following. They often sound like commands, but they’re not. They are often overlooked — even by those tasked with enforcing them.
