I’m a May on my mother’s maternal side. Those who poke around Mormon research libraries tell me that the name dates back to an early Anglo-Norman-Irish (can you say “mutt mix?”) emigration — could’ve picked it up anywhere along the way from L’Hexagone to the land of the Angles to Éire. It cracks me up…

I was delivered from down off the Mount (just like a pair of stone-flipping-tablets, though far less biblical in nature) on my father’s maternal side. Now the fine folks who track such things tell me that my ancestral peeps could have acquired this lofty rubric from either our Scottish or English forebears. Regardless of origin,…

Okay, so I don’t work a 9-to-5 job — that doesn’t mean I’m not proud of the things I’ve accomplished in my career. But some narrow-minded folks out there believe that if you’re not ascending a stereotypical vocational ladder in the socially-proscribed manner, it doesn’t count. (These people are morons.) In defiance of “The Man,”…

I remember the first time a well-meaning leadership-development-pal suggested that I needed a “bio.” Upon asking why, I was told, “It highlights your accomplishments and talents. It makes you appear credible to your clients. It’s the core of your branding. ” (Yeah. I’m pretty sure this AIN’T what she had in mind!) Putting The ‘Mad’…

They say “it’s the nuts that make a family tree worth shaking.” Well if that’s true, I have one of the most worthwhile bits of arboreal genealogy currently planted in the terra firma. We wear crazy like a badge of honor — and whoa buddy, do my ancestors have a lot to be proud of…

Ever since birth, folks have called me “inventive,” “imaginative” — “annoying.” (Your stereotypical hyper-active bouncing-off-the-walls-brain-asploding-with-too-many-ideas type.) I can’t help it. I come from an artsy-crafty sort of family. My depression-era parents placed a high value on creativity as a life skill — not just for the inherent sake of beauty, but as a survival technique…

A lot of extremely misguided (and generally pretty unhappy) people think that “success” in life should be measured in terms of your credentials or cash flow or the things you’ve accumulated — but I’ll let you in on a little secret (a-la Fight Club ). You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have…

I was invited to join a full score of experts and industry leaders from around the world in sharing their best advice for a business success compendium. I’m quite certain poor Graham McGregor (the lovely gentleman who interviewed me) had no clue what he was getting himself into when he sent me that initial email…
