Almost everyone is a “regular” person. But some people are “extraordinary.” Kara Counard is regular, too, but she acts “as if” she is actually “extraordinary.” We can all act “as if” we are successful and extraordinary. It is a choice. But in all honesty, it can be a difficult choice. And most people don’t try. I hope that you are one of the people who will try to act extraordinary. Kara Counard of Bloom Photography, Green Bay, Wisconsin. Ralph Quintero of the Happy Someone podcast. John Lee Dumas of the Entrepreneur On Fire podcast .
Kara never sits still. She was working as a bartender, a Starbucks barrista, an appraisal service, a figure model for several art schools, and was a free-lance graphic design artist, all at the same time. Photography was not part of her life plan. She thought starting an Etsy store was her future. But she listened to her customers and in the process created a business–all because she filled the needs of her customers. She gave them what they wanted! You can see more of her work at her website. More Information on Kara’s “Day in the Life” sessions. Information on her Honoring Elders project, and another article about that project is here. Listen to Kara and her Women Over 90 exhibit on Wisconsin Public Radio and a YouTube video on the same project. Watch her on WTMJ’s “The Morning Blend”. Books She references the work of Father G and his Homeboy Industries. When you are next in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Kara recommends eating at: Kavarna Coffeehouse 335 on Broadway Lox, Stock and Bagels
It’s not always the person who was naturally gifted who wins. It’s not always the person with the best tools. Sometimes it is the person who refuses to quit, who faces the challenges and never surrenders. But you also need to make sure that you are truly making progress. If you aren’t making any progress, maybe then you need to step back, critically assess your plan and make the necessary changes.
The old joke goes: A teenager gets off the train in New York City, and as he leaves the station carrying his violin, he spots a police officer. Walking up to him, he asks, “How do I get to Carnegie Hall?” Without missing a beat, the officers says, “Practice, son, practice!” Kelly Bucheger doesn’t live in New York City, but rather Buffalo, NY and he shows why success happens when you find your calling in ife and then never let anything become an obstacle in your path. He is a jazz saxaphonist and he shares how he found success in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, then left and moved to Buffalo where he knew no one, and rebuilt a successful career in performance and composing. A few resources Kelly talked about: James Carter Ruined My Life. is a 2011 post on his blog Harder Bop. An interview with Kelly in Buffalo Sounds, from may 7, 2013.

If at first you don’t succeed, try try again! And then, if you still don’t succeed, then what? Do you keep trying the same thing? I hope not. If it didn’t work the first three times, why do you think the fourth will be different. Knowing when to keep going and when to pivot to a new direction is the key to success. Let’s talk about how to make that decision.

Courtesy of Audionautix.com Pastitisio, courtesy of Ilias’s mother: For the pasta ▪ 500g pasta for Pastitsio (1 pound dry)-available at Greek or ethnic groceries. (You can substitute ziti or penne ) For the béchamel sauce ▪ 1/2 cup butter ▪ 1/2 cup all purpose flour ▪ 1 lt milk warmed ▪ 2 eggs ▪ 1 cup parmesan cheese ▪ salt ▪ nutmeg For the meat sauce: ▪ 600 gr. Ground beef or preferably veal ▪ 400 gr. Tomato sauce ▪ 2 onions minced ▪ 2 garlic cloves thinly minced ▪ 3 tbsp. olive oil ▪ salt, pepper 1. For the meat sauce, heat olive oil in a large sauté pan. Add the onions and the garlic and sauté for 5 minutes until they are translucent. Then add the ground beef and cook over medium-high heat until pink color disappears, about 5-15 minutes. Add tomato sauce, salt, and pepper and allow sauce to simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes, until sauce is ready. 2. While sauce is simmering put water on to boil for pasta. 3. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. When butter starts to bubble, using a whisk, add flour to melted butter whisking continuously to make a smooth paste or roux. Allow the flour/butter mixture to cook for a minute but do not allow it to brown. 4. Add warmed milk and eggs to mixture in a steady stream, whisking continuously. Simmer over low heat until it thickens but does not boil. 5. Add pinch of nutmeg, pepper, salt and the 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and stir in. If sauce still needs to thicken, return to heat and cook over very low heat while continuing to stir. 6.
We all want to be comfortable. We want nice homes, nice cars and a good job with benefits. We want the security if a retirement plan, and the knowledge that our future days will be similar to our past days. But does that stimulate growth? What if growth requires the acceptance of the uncomfortable? What if you need to confront fear and risk, and step forward without knowing exactly what is in front of you?
Scott Wilson is an electrical and telecommunication engineer for a large nuclear powerplant in Ontario, Canada. I met through LoseIt! Scott is an active member, helping others continue on their weight loss journey. Scott is an enthusiastic guy, busy with family and career, but yet still finds time to enjoy life. He also knows how to properly complain! (He is a very nice guy, but is very effective when he encounters a problem. Be bold!) Scott’s favorite quote: For of all sad words of tongue or pen, The saddest are these: “It might have been!” (John Greenleaf Whittier) The show notes for every episode will include links to products, people and services that were mentioned in the episode.

It is the first time I was able to lose weight, and more importantly, keep it off! It is easy to use, works on iOS and Android (not Windows Phones, sorry) and has an online platform, too. It combines the ease and simplicity of calorie counting with the social networking of Facebook. Many users report that they are on their LoseIt activity streams more often than they are on Facebook. There is a free version (which really works!) and a premium version, The premium version allows trackign food in the future (for better planning), setting non-weight-based goals (body fat, measurements, nutrients, blood pressures and many more). When you have premium, you can also create your own community groups and challenges. One of the nicest features of premium is that it allows you to synch your Lose It! account with other devices and applications. Get Lose It! Premium because it works. Scott mentioned Earl Nightingale and Dale Carnegie’s books: Scott mentioned Martina McBride and her song, “Anyway” Here is a link the the episode featuring Steve Grant and his poutine. Music composed and performed by Jason Shaw. Courtesy of Audionautix.com Scott provided this recipe: Mille Fay – or Mock Mille Feuille (Note name difference from Mille Feuille). This dessert tastes very much like a mille-feuille pastry, which you might also know as a ‘Napolean.’ Be sure to use a cooked pudding mix and note that the amount of milk added is less than the regular pudding instructions – so the filling is custardy. This dessert is best if made at least 8 hours ahead of serving and stored in the fridge. VANILLA SLICE – Makes one 9 x 13 inch dessert – approx 18 servings INGREDIENTS Graham Cracker Squares – 2 sleeves (approx 40) Jello Cooked Vanilla Pudding/Pie Filling – 1 large package (170 grams) Milk – 2 and 1/4 cups Whipping Cream – 2 cups GLAZE Icing sugar – 2 cups Vanilla – 1 and 1/2 tsp Hot tap water – 3-4 Tbsp Unsweetened dark chocolate – 1 ounce METHOD
Before you can accomplish anything, you need a plan. It doesn’t need to be finely detailed, but you need to know where you are going. But a plan does nothing until you actually take a step forward. Pull the trigger! Stop analyzing and take action.
