This blog is to help and encourage families to achieve success - however you define it. If you run your family like a profitable business, you will reach your goals. How do you run it like a business? By leading the areas that need to be led, and managing the areas that need to be managed.
Help is here for your finances, with information about what is going on in the economy, job tips, investment information, how to teach your children about money, what your money says about you...
Help is here for your relationships. Mrs. Kennedy is called by some "the groovy lady with two and a half rules" for a reason: I only have two and a half rules. Why? Because I can remember that many. Rule one is "We will respect each other." Respect is so lacking in society today. Rooted in pride, people behave as though their time is more valuable than your time - ever get cut off in traffic? See my point? Do you have a friend or spouse who keeps you waiting? Same thing. You can't change other people, but you can be the change you want to see in the world, as Ghandi said, and you can teach your children how to act.
Help is here for yourself! Remember when you were on the plane and the Flight Attendant said, "place the mask over your own face before placing it on your children." There's a reason for that! You can't give what you don't have. You must have peace before you can give peace. You must have joy before you can share joy. Here a place to come for encouragement to be the best you can be - and when you're raising a family, you need some encouragement.
There will be other topics, as we go along. Feel free to search the blog for subjects of particular interest, and be sure to follow me on Twitter ( @ConnieKennedy ) and share this page with your friends. Let's lead our families, shall we?
Who are you going to lead today?
