Michael Hyatt, CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, on Coaching

by Justin Lukasavige on October 26, 2010

Michael Hyatt is the CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers and talks about why he works with coaches.  Right in the beginning he points out that it’s not always about hiring someone.  Coaches can be found in seminars and books, too.  I think Michael’s a pretty smart guy and he shares valuable advice learned from years of experience.


Just Do It

by Justin Lukasavige on October 19, 2010

I travel a lot of places and everywhere I go, I find people remarking about how I get so many things done.  I host a few shows each week, blog nearly every day, and still manage to crank more out.  I sum up how I manage to do that in this short video.

Get Found in Google Maps Without an Address

by Justin Lukasavige on October 8, 2010

Google has upped their game again, now allowing people working out of their homes, to be listed in google maps without an address.  They’ve renamed their business feature to google places and now allow you to list a service area.

With this change there’s no reason not to be listed with google.  Get out there and be found!

Out of Medium’s

by Derek Sisterhen on October 7, 2010

bread sticksAs is the case on most Sunday’s, my family and I order pizza.  It’s been a tradition in Christine’s family for as long as she can remember.  We stepped outside the box (you’ll get that pun later) this Sunday and ordered take-out from CiCi’s Pizza, which is not our usual place.

Our kids are young and don’t eat a lot, so one large pizza with an order of bread sticks is more than enough to fill us up.  Christine left to pick up the pizza and came home with these two large boxes, each the same size.

The restaurant apparently told her they were out of the medium size breadsticks so she bought the large box.

I’m no genius, and it’s really not a big deal, but isn’t the difference between the medium and large a matter of a few more breadsticks in the large?  In other words, even if you’re out of mediums, can’t you take a few out of the large box and call it a medium?

I really don’t get the reasoning behind this and to me (a customer) it makes it look like the restaurant just doesn’t care.  If I’m missing the big picture (I’m no pizza expert after all), please tell me.

I hope you’re not doing this to your customers.  It’s OK if you can reason your way in to or out of something, but don’t leave your customers wondering.  They’ll come to their own conclusions and those conclusions probably won’t favor you.

Put yourself in the pizza guy’s shoes.  Could you have come up with a medium order?


Storms To Sunny Skies

by Jory Butler on October 6, 2010

This week I want to share with you the storms of a career search.  Many times we don’t get what we want when we want it.  There are many career changers out there that go through storms before there are sunny skies.  It’s worth it to do the work in order to move towards work you love.

If you feel that you know someone who needs help have them contact me at the Lukas Coaching Team.

Traveling for Ideas

October 1, 2010

Henry Ford was famous for sitting for ideas.  He insisted that those who were always running around being busy were not the most productive.  He wanted people who would sit back and think about new and creative things.
Bill Gates routinely takes time every year to clear his schedule and think.
The power of getting out of [...]

Are You A Sneetch?

October 1, 2010

A quick tour of my house and it’s no secret I’m a Dr. Seuss fan. I love his creativity and the life lessons he always manages to sneak into the story regardless of how zany the words and characters may be. One of my all time favorites is The Sneetches, a story about a group [...]
