Maria & I moved to Barcelona in January of this year and she's been having her challenges with learning Spanish. I love her so much that I'll do anything to help her learn this language so that she can be even more social in the city of living. Knowing that Maria's primary love language is acts of service, and one of the qualities from her list
was to make her laugh, I thought I get her some special help from a new style of… Continue

Last night I attended a networking event where my soon to be bride
to be was one of the guest speakers. Let me just say that she was amazing, her presence magnificent, and just to ensure I'm not being biased (because obviously I am), the rest of the people I spoke with were very impressed! During the taxi ride home the song "I Drove All Night" (Cindy Lauper… Continue

It's September 8th and I’ve just settled into my hotel room on the night before another Strategy in a Day
session. Yeah, cause Charminguy.com isn't my day job.. yet ;-)
I’m working my way through some e-mails with the TV in the background. I have to burst out into laughter as I overhear the TV commercial for Viagra announce their disclaimer; “don’t forget to ask your doctor if your heart is strong enough for sex”.
So what have… Continue

So what’s more important.. love or money?
Well Maria & I were talking about this very subject on our car trip
this weekend and we came to the conclusion that money can’t buy you love.. and I’m talking about the love you feel in your heart.. and not the girl standing on the corner.. but once you have love in your life, the money will follow.
It’s all in doing what you’re passionate about… Continue

Achieving a harmonious balance between your work responsibilities and your personal life requires that you become selfish. That’s right, selfish. Stop frowning and wipe that look of disbelief from your face. Let’s look at this concept again starting by examining the word “selfish”…

I recently listened to NY based physiotherapist Karen Stark
about, amongst other topics, men’s relationships with their mothers, and how it
affects the relationship they’ll have with their partners.
In part, I have to agree with her that a strong and close relationship with our mothers tends to manifest the same relationship with our… Continue

Who do you belong to? Who belongs to you? It's not as much
about the possession, but about where you feel most comfortable. Where do you
belong? And who belongs by your side?
Do you ever get tired of walking alone? Have you ever felt the loneliest when you’re standing right next to someone who isn’t “the one”? So why do you keep doing it? Or better yet, what are you prepared to do about

Love Languages are the 5 basic emotional languages that we all have as human beings, and they speak directly to our hearts. No matter what else your partner does or says to you, when they’re speaking your primary love language, you are feeling overjoyed, appreciated and sincerely loved. When they’re not.. you’re not feeling the love!
The Five Love Languages or basic emotional languages, in no particular order, that we all have are:

Dr. Gary Chapman
said it best when he phrased something along the lines of “think of your heart as the gasoline tank. If the gasoline tank in your car is empty are you going to get very far?” Well, your heart is like that!

I was recently speaking with a coaching client about the
people that she surrounds herself with and how they affect her life. The
conclusion I was trying to validate is that if you’re selective with the
influences you allow into your life, you’ll significantly increase your odds of

My kids are in Barcelona for a brief 10 day vacation. I've been hard at work after having moved here in January and have only been able to see them 3 times in the last 8 months! I used to see them every other weekend, lately, I've had to settle for conversing practically everyday via messenger.
My eldest is 15 years old, my youngest is 10. They're going through different stages of their lives right now, both of them on their own journeys of self discovery. I want them to be happy, to… Continue
