Is your glass half full or half empty? Is your mind and thought process holding you back from your full potential? Can positive thinking make you successful?

These are question’s every person should ask themselves as they embark on a new year, set goals and learn to live in a very different environment. The world is not how it use to be and that is a fact, but how are you going to adapt, cope and live your best life?

My new year’s resolution was simple: have rich conversations (and achieve my goals). Every year I have a theme and this year is conversation.

It's not rocket science I know, but many companies didn't get on the digital bandwagon fast enough and have left it to the last minute. Better late than never, and there will always be those of whom think they can wait a little longer, which means ultimately, they will be the one's with less clients at the end of the day.

Today is just like any other day. I woke up at 3.40 a.m., hopped on a conference call with a vendor who is looking to optimize their channel partnership program utilizing Robotic Marketer technology, talked for an hour, then hopped on another call. Before I knew it, it was 6.30 a.m. and the coffee shop was now open.
