In the part of the country I live in, spring is an exciting time. We get most of our snow in March and April. We have had snow in the city as late as June. When it comes to stepping up to spring, and the growing summer season, we are a little bit one step forward and one step back.
Once we determine to do something the one step forward in our lives and our jobs, it is a reasonable means of propulsion. Unfortunately, the one step back seems to be a significant deviation from our plans. Once we have determined to go forward, we’d rather not have things that tend to block our way or slow us down. Needing to slow down or deviate due to conditions we cannot control is painful.
Once you set your plans in motion, what seems to be the obstacles that get in your way or slow you down?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
