I was raised as the only child of a hard working single Mom. In my formative years, she taught me so much about life and business. Truthfully, I didn’t know that’s what I was learning until the day came for me to enter the business world. Then, moment by moment, as the tests and trials […]

Using Halftime Thinking for Greater Significance

Bob Buford

Busy professionals seldom think about the total impact of their lives until they get to an age where the end is near.
