Patrick Lanning: Getting the Most Out of College Life

When young people begin their lives as college students, it is typically quite different than the life they had as a student previously. It is true that some students go to boarding schools or educational institutions that place a high demand on there being focused, and independent, but typically students come from learning environments where they are handheld and ushered through toward graduation. For this reason many college students have a hard adjustment in making transition to college life. What they eventually learn is that there is a different set of skills, a different approach, and a different set of…

Dan DeKoter: Primary Reasons Couples Divorce

When we are children we imagine meeting our perfect mate and being married one day. Our expectations are that this marriage will last forever and be filled with joy and constant happiness. When we grow up and have the good fortune of finding someone we love enough to marry, we do it realizing that sometimes fairytales do not have a happy ending. However, with this said, no one enters into marriage with the expectancy that it will end in divorce. Yet unfortunately despite love being as strong as it is and people committing to the monumental efforts that it takes…

Make Your Husband Happy, Build Him a Man Cave 

Your husband works really hard, putting in the extra hours so that he can contribute to the happiness and comfort of your family. Maybe he does some type of manual labor and comes home exhausted from working with a work crew.

Wanna Be A CEO One Day? Here are The Skills You’ll Need

Let’s be honest, we would all one day love to become the CEO of a major corporation, making powerful business decisions, earning an insane salary and counting on having power, respect and influence in all quarters. The reason why there are so few CEOs in the world, and also the reason why they are paid so well, is down t o the fact that it is not an easy job to do, and not everyone is able to do it. CEOs come from all walks of life, some were natural whizz kids like Mark Zuckerberg who took their company to…

How to Achieve The Success You Desire 

Success comes in many forms and to each of you the word success will mean a wide variety of things. In spite of the destination being different for each of us, the path to success is very much the same and requires similar traits and skills. Those who have success, are often of kindred spirits, and they practice the same qualities as each other.

What to Consider When Selecting a College 

Last year my son and I spent hours upon hours searching for the best college for him to select for his further education and I must be honest, it was far more time consuming and complicated than I first thought. Our final choice was the fantastic Alabama A&M University, chosen because my son wanted to study agriculture and they had a great course which he managed to get in to. The choice of course wasn’t the only deciding factor in terms of which college he went to and there really is much more to consider than just this. If you…

Why Your Hotel Needs Entertainment

The hotel industry has really been through the ringer in the last decade, first there were the difficulties which cam for many hotels after the 2008 economic crisis, and then came the inception of the likes of AirBnb and private rentals, stealing much trade away from the hotels. In truth, many hotels can be accused of being guilty of thinking that they could always depend on their customers, and the rug has now been pulled from under their feet. Last month I was in a favorite hotel of mine, the Bicycle Hotel and Casino in California, a hotel which may…

Who Looks Set To Win This Year’s Champions League?

For me the Champions League is the absolute pinnacle of football and I cannot wait to see who will loft this year’s trophy. In recent years the competition has been dominated by Barcelona and Real Madrid, with only a couple of exceptions but this could be the year that this all changes.

I had a chat last week with my buddy Greg Lindae about who he thinks will lift the trophy, and here is what we arrived at.…
