Recently, I had a client say to me, “Your training has helped me and my sales team tremendously, and I wish we would have met 20 years ago!” It’s nice to hear you have happy clients, and my guess is you have happy clients that have said something similar to you – wishing they would have been working with you sooner, based on what you do for them now. But this article is not about happy clients, as nice as that is. This is more about asking yourself what might be holding you back to grow and develop you, your team, and your organization now, so that you don't look back with regret 20 years from now. The beauty of hindsight is often not so beautiful when it involves improving yourself. By Gary Harvey

College planning encompasses numerous details, including visiting institutions that a student may want to attend, applying for financial aid, obtaining transcripts and letters of recommendation and meeting deadlines. A high school student can take responsibility for making sure that important matters are tended to ahead of time. For example, if a student has a school vacation coming up, he or she could help organize a family trip to visit colleges of interest or spend some time completing college applications. You and your prospective student may be able to think of more ideas that could add value to your family's efforts to save for a college education. By Jeff Nelligan

What the Frack? We’ll all be asking that question with a sense of disbelief in the coming months as millions of ad dollars are poured out by pro-fracking forces and their opponents to convince Colorado voters that their side, and their side alone, represents truth, justice and The American Way. No matter what you believe, by November you’ll look at “Frack” as the new “F” word, guaranteed. It’ll be the subject to avoid in polite company. By Jeff Rundles
