I have a friend who is a business consultant, he says his job is: "Working with business owners to help them make more money in less time, get off the treadmill, and get back to the passion that brought them into business in the first place, so they can use their business to help fulfill their lifetime goals."

This is a great statement of what I try to do with the Franklin Circle groups I help start with entrepreneurs, business owners and CEOs.

Can you join us this afternoon for the new, free Denver Open group?

Breaking the habit of self-criticism can pay big dividends in mental and physical health. "The way you see yourself can be challenged and changed, and it can literally create new neural pathways in your brain," says Dr. Legato. "And as your thinking improves, your immune system improves, your digestion is better, you don't compensate by overeating or drinking, and your anxiety levels go down."

You may find you have mental and emotional energy left over for many other things -- including helping other people feel better about themselves.

I just posted this comment:

Young Ben Franklin started a group with his friends, they met together for over 30 years and played a key part in Franklin's life and the lives of the others in that original group.
