2013_sparklersI have compiled a list of some of the best blogs on predictions and trends for 2013 in the five topics I write about:  Live Well, Love Deeply, Learn Continuously, Lead Courageously and Leave a Legacy.  So, without further ado and  sparkler fanfare, here we go…

Live Well:

  1. Thanks for the listing, Steve! you’ve got some great blogs listed. I also like Leadership Freak & Great Leaders Serve for good leadership reading.

      Thanks Andrea. Yes, I also like Leadership Freak. Dan’s posts are packed and insightful. I have not read much of Mark Miller but heard him speak on The Nines a couple years ago. Thanks for the reminder and suggestion.
