Over the last decade or so, the terms teamwork, team, and coach have proliferated in business discussions. This article explains more about the anatomy of teams and teamwork. I think you will find it insightful and quite detailed.

It explains the team and its dynamics (many members change over time) and how individual and team goals change over time. Team diversity is an important factor in interpreting team goals and context.  If your team is geographically diverse, as well, differences in the availability of certain resources can be challenging.



The need for a system, goal articulation (why), a shared mindset and strong leadership (coaching) are all important elements in the success of your business team. I am associated with a company that has understood the concept of team work for over 30 years. It has made my activities more effective and much more profitable.

For Moms (or Grandmas and Memes) who want to work from the luxury of their own homes so they can be there more for their children, grandchildren and families, this might be something worth a peek.

Simply put, a budget is an estimated list of your income and expenses.   Making a budget can help you reduce your debt. How?  It lets you see where your money is coming from and where it is going every month.  Many people have no idea what they spend their money on.  They just know they have it, or they don’t.  It can be a great tool for avoiding unnecessary stress because it helps you cut down on unnecessary spending.    Here are three steps to help you start getting in the habit of making a budget:

  • Make a simple list of monthly expenses.  Include essentials and extras.
  • Make a simple list of monthly income.  Include all of your activities that generate income.
  • Put in on the refrigerator.  The point is to share it with the rest of the family, whether that is your significant other, spouse, parents, children or grand-children.  This makes it a family affair.
