At the bottom of all business success and all employee success are good ol’ small town, Midwestern values:

  • Do the right thing
  • Do what you said you would do, or let them know as soon as possible if you can’t
  • If you need help figgerin’ it out, ask somebody
  • “You can’t have everything, where would you put it?” Steven Wright
  • Most luck comes from hard work, goals, and stickin’ to it
  • The best thing you can do when it all goes to hell is keep on movin’ forward
  • No one said the world is fair, only that it’s round
  • If you screw up, just admit it, fix it, and get the hell outta the way
  • If you’re getting paid for a 40-hour job, they expect you to actually work 40 hours
  • If you don’t own the business, somebody out there who does may have mortgaged their home, their kids, and their future to make it happen. Respect that and give them your best
  • Life really is good; we really do have it great in the US; most people really are decent human beings; and you do create your own success
  • Resilience is worth more than things
  • Gratitude, Forgiveness, Grace, Detachment, and Love pretty much trump everything else. Looking for ROI? You’ll find it there.

If you’d like to have Beth come talk to your managers, employees or executive team, contact her and she’ll be delighted to talk with you and find out if it’s the right fit. If it’s not, Beth is a member of the National Speakers Association and a past Arizona State president. She can refer you to someone who is.

Thanks for stoppin’ by.

  1. Hi Beth,

    I appreciate your terrific site and example.

    I’m involved in NSA in Los Angeles. I’m taking the local “Pro-Speak Academy” and am putting together my one sheet.

    Perhaps I’ll meet you at a NSA Convention one day.

    In the meanwhile, I’m following you on Twitter. Feel free to follow me, too.



    • Hi Jean! Welcome to the fold! Make sure you check out the NSA Academy, too. Even if you don’t join that, for a nominal amount you can attend the Cavett Institute at the Conventions. Think of it as the National equivalent to a Pro-speak membership. I ran our Candidate program in AZ and then the National Academy. NSA is a great group of very caring and sharing people. Hope to meet you at a convention one of these days! Thanks for writing in!
