gofundme Fail – Danny Boice Bullies his ex-wife

Updated May 15, 2018: Danny Boice bullies his ex-wife yet after 24 hours, the gofundme campaign has been restored. Danny's attempt to shut her down failed. The account is back live. Original Post: Danny Boice bullies his ex-wife. Today I learned a lesson about gofundme.. they support domestic abuse, they allow themselves to be bullied. They are willing to stand and watch as Danny Boice bullies his ex-wife, Joanne Boice. Four days ago, Debbie Bailey posted a gofundme campaign for her sister, Joanne Boice. Joanne is the former wife of Danny Boice. For those of you new to the story, Danny Boice is a documented bully and crook.  See these blog posts: Running Total of Danny Boice Malfeciance Danny Boice bullies his ex-wife. He's been bullying her for years. During their 9 year marriage and more so after the divorce. Danny lives in a $2 million house, drives luxury automobiles, takes two-week exotic vacations, all over the world flying on private jets. Danny is now married to his ex-wife's good friend who he impregnated while still married to Joanne. Yet his stay-at-home wife receives a mere $700 per month in alimony. They share custody of 2 children and as Danny has driven Joanne into poverty, he is...

Blockchain Blockheads

It happened with Crowd Funding, it happened with Beanie Babies, it happened with Tulips and it's happening now with cryptocurrency and blockchain. Whenever there is a new "Big Thing." Whenever it's going to be the "Next Big Thing." There's a group of know-next-to-nothings, willing to monetize a know-nothing's greed in order to profit from shit they do not understand. Now I'm not saying Blockchain isn't going to be big. I think it's going to be HUGE! I'm talking HUGE with a silent H. Yet, when there is a gold rush, there is a rush for charlatans to insert themselves between the greedy and their wallets. You can tell when a market is heating up with grifters when there are more conferences on the market then there are marketeers. Take the recent deluge of Blockchain conferences booking any speaker who can spell blokchain (which leaves me out and thus why I'm ranting here) filling the stage with myopic one-eyed men (which is an expression that leaves out one-eyed women or even the more woke one-eyed-they) that rush into these nascent (which is a word that I have no idea what it means but man doesn't it make me sound smart) in an effort to fleece...

Leading Irrational Humans

Leading Irrational Humans This short 3-minute excerpt from my intentional leadership presentation explains the importance of understanding that humans are inherently irrational. That we must be aware that we are leading irrational humans. If you'd like to lead irrational humans. If you'd like to discuss your leadership challenges. If you'd like to develop techniques to be an intentional leader. Schedule a no-obligation, complimentary, online coaching session by scheduling a meeting here.   The text of Leading Irrational Humans Humans use different parts of our brain depending on how much energy we have. how we feel. The brain is the most intensive energy exhaustive organ in our bodies. It uses an amazing amount of energy and because of that, we try to conserve energy with it. We don't use it to its full capacity all the time and a study that illustrates that took place in Israel with Israeli parole judges. in that study, it found that when an Israeli parole judge just starts working in the morning or comes back from their lunch break or even a bathroom break, if they've have more energy they approve 65% of the parole applications that are in front of them. Two hours later it goes to zero. They approve 35%...

Getting to Why with Beth Berman

This week, I had the pleasure of meeting with Beth Berman, CEO/Founder, Compellications ™. She's a "why," lady. Why do I say that? In leadership, nothing is more important than being conscious of your personal and organizational intentions. Simon Sinek refers to this as your "why," and Daniel Pink calls it "higher purpose." Whatever name you put on it, declaring your "Why" is declaring your intentions. It announces to others whether you are friend or foe. A team of mere mortals aligned by intentions or what Beth Berman, calls their "why" are more likely to succeed than an all-star team of non-aligned superstars. So what's your why? What's your team's why? Don't know...

Adverse Childhood Experience

Self-Destructive Adverse Childhood Experiences

Everyday Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) All human children develop coping mechanisms to deal with uncomfortable events. We create strategies that as children help us manage stress. Many of us subconsciously utilize these coping mechanisms into adulthood where they don't serve us quite as well. For me, my mom was very controlling. Don't get me wrong, she was a great mom, yet I bristled against her control, and my strategy to rebel against her power was to act out...

Safe Space Overload – A Generation of Wimps

What is a Safe Space? According to my google search: safe space noun a place or environment in which a person or category of people can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any other emotional or physical harm. "school must be a safe space for LGBT students." I support that principle that at-risk groups and individuals...
