JBB’s Final Thoughts Episode 25: The Power of “No”

JBB’s Final Thoughts Episode 25: The Power of “No” Episode 25: The Power of “No” After a very long hiatus I’m back… This video podcast is based on a presentation I gave on August 5th, 2018 at Sunday Assembly Las Vegas about living more intentionally and making choices based on the things that are most important to ones self.

Mistakes Were Made: On Camera [video fridays]

As the painfully extended “Mistakes Were Made” week concludes I’d like to recognize those men and women who often have put themselves in harms way to bring us the news and chief among them, those who have “flubbed” their lines and shown their human side.
