Leading Your Own Life

Well, the festivities of the 4th of July are over and summer is officially under way. I spend my summers on Red Wing Island, a piece of property that has been in my family for 69 years this year. Right now I am sitting in my A-frame on my couch at 5 a.m. watching two Loons float by as Bluegills snatch insects off the water’s surface and Kingfishers chatter on. Soon, I’ll paddle off the island and go do my horse chores.

Squeeze the Life out of Every Day

I had a recent talk in Chicago; I was the keynote speaker for the Illinois Credit Union League. Being a Chicago keynote speaker is something I really enjoy because Chicago is actually my home town. I am not much of a city boy anymore, having left over 25 years ago, but I still have fun going back.

The Wolf Personality

Being a keynote speaker in Chicago doesn’t necessarily make my life easier, because I want to visit and explore while I am there, as things change so much over the years. I guess I try to do it all on my trips. Having the wolf personality, I am kind of partial to having a good time (if you don’t know what I mean about the wolf personality, go take the Animal Leadership personality test at I like to explore and turn everything into a playful experience. This time,  there was a lot to pack in my experience of being a leadership speaker in Chicago. This time I was able to attend ReptileFest!
