Does your life ever turn back to normal after a parent passes? I don't think so and for the first time in my life I am missing my mom who passed away two weeks ago. The good news is that we shared a relationship that went beyond unconditional love and friendship. The last couple of months we spent hours talking about everything. I learned a great deal about our family that I hadn't heard before and a lot about my ancestors. Then, I also listened to her last wishes and her regrets in life and took them to heart. One of the things she told me she regretted was not spending time, quality time, one on one with her grandchildren. Don't get me wrong, she was a fabulous grandmother, but to her she wished she would have done things with them other than the occasional holiday gatherings and pool parties. She advised me to take every opportunity to spend with my grandchildren dong things with them they love and enjoy away from the house.
Times have changed since the thriving days of the Mega Malls, now most are closing. I couldn't help but wonder if today's author, Gary Petz, and his book "Stores on Fire" he co-authored with Philip Mitchell, could help any of them, so, I asked to speak with the managers or owners and told them about the book and the workbook. If you are a small store owner, hardware store owner, or an mega store owner and your sales are slumping, I think you will find "Stores on Fire" incredibly useful. Now, let me introduce you to Gary and the book.
