Dealing with Dyslexia. When I was in my early years, my cousin recognized my struggle and explained the challenges and opportunities of the disorder to me. I found my way around and dealt with it in my own way, how I read, write and absorb information, is far different, to how I relay information. Others started to see me highly intuitive – known to be “street smart.” and often “dead on” in judging personalities of others.

Today I am still struggling like uncertainty with words, punctuation, and spelling when writing. Reliance on spell-check and grammar-check. Reliance on others (assistants, spouses, significant others) for written correspondence can be even more frustrating.

Dealing with dyslexia we read better with a bigger font size. It also explains why I prefer to use for example Century Gothic some Microsoft Office Typefaces. ComicSans, Century Gothic, Verdana, Trebuchet

Richard Branson, Virgin; Paul Orfalea, Kinko’s; Ingvar Kamprad, Ikea; James Dyson, Dyson; Steve Jobs, Apple; Kevin O’Leary, Shark Thank; we’re all extremely creative people and all have one thing in common, Dyslexia (including myself). A Dyslexic sees failure as a part of the path to progress.

Dyslexics Will Rule the Future
Strengths • Creativity • Problem-Solving • Connecting Unrelated Dots / Patterns • Big Picture Thinking. Dyslexics are extraordinarily creative about maneuvering their way around problems
The most valuable lesson I learned in school was how to “hack” the system which forced me to get creative.

If I was Cat, I would happily meow Happy Birthday, and spin in your lap comfortable dreaming away. But amidst difficult times, tough situations and harsh circumstances, you are the living example that we can sail through any storm of life. Happy birthday sweetheart. I hope I can make it truly a happy day, week, month and years to come. If I was a teddy bear, I would give unconditional love hugs and millions of kisses. But even being human I feel I want to do everything to give you, with every breath the love you earn as the most precious human being on this earth. So special, so natural, so lovely and without doubt your hands as they are touching things to change in magic.

I am deep in your debt and can’t express enough gratitude for al you do and all the love you fulfill selflessly every day in our house, our live without hesitation to show your true love to reach our destination.

Happy Birthday, Sweetheart.

November is the month of Thanksgiving and the day itself comes around. As an entrepreneur and as a human being it is my favorite holiday of the year–by far. It is, of course, a refreshing pause from daily business tsuris, as well as the only holiday devoted to pure gratitude for… everything — all our abundance and our very existence.

But it is also a reminder that thankfulness is a key to business health. I’ve always believed it is the simple things that make for success in business. Not the brilliant, not the celebrated, not the strategically complex. One of those simple things is the act of saying “Thank you”. I always take time to say it, to mean it, to write it, to email it, even to tweet it. As I would like to put it “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”

I genuinely am grateful, for all those who are supportive of making every step coming closer to success, particularly to those smart hard-working team members who make the difference, for their care in making my time efficient and specific. No matter how busy my day, how far or close I maybe be, I like to express my gratitude for their effort.

. It doesn’t just acknowledge someone’s effort, kindness, intent, or action. It recognizes the person himself. It’s even more important than acknowledging the principal person you are doing business with because it sets a tone for discussion.

I am thankful for the opportunity to thank you all my dearest love my children, my family, my friends, my team and all others close and far away. Happy Thanksgiving!

We share the same humanity, we share our need for purpose, identity and community – even if we prefer our own company and solitude. Our lives consist of ebb and flow, coming and going, life and death. We may struggle to make our mark, to make ends meet, to be creative and fulfilled. We have dreams, hopes, disappointments, drama and trauma. Often, we look from afar to others for support and guidance, and are attracted by their creative expression, wisdom and aura. “We absolutely have to tell the world, show the world, that there is a collective responsibility to act. We share the same humanity and we cannot continue to allow economic wars to be fought on women’s bodies.”

You eat a delicious, satisfying dinner, feel full to the brim, but when the beautiful question ‘Should we get dessert?’ comes around, it’s always a yes — satisfaction for the sweet moment but could dismay afterwards.

It’s true, we always have room for desserts, whether we indulge that sensation with dessert or not (kudos if you have the willpower) but the sweet sensation is an satisfaction for a moment. Satisfaction is a great feeling it comes and disappears. The sensation of (accomplished) satisfaction is addictive as sweet but it grows to stay.

This sensation or feeling is what our human body drives we are prewired to drive on the (sweet) primary success even the smallest s give you the drive for more even we are full. With the willpower we can control our next step to accomplish more as the taste of success is like our desert (but definitive healthier). Success is sweet and can be as addictive.

In our lives from young to the far end we need to remind our self that the smallest accomplishments are the mayor building block for who we are today and will be tomorrow and in the future. Tell Your Children sweet is appealing. But accomplishments create appetite and warrants success, thats is real sweet.

And lets try to remember “Happiness comes from accomplishments”

Today is International Women’s Day and as such I would like to honor all the (professional) woman in my life, past and present, who have fueled, organized, and grown the businesses I have teamed up with over the course of my career. These women have enabled my personal and professional growth and have also allowed me to see the world through another’s eyes. For this, and the countless other ways these women enhance our businesses, our industries, our communities, and our lives, I thank them, today, and every day.
