Gil Pizano B 300x300 About Gil PizanoHello and wel­come! “Life is too short, make it a choice to enjoy it and bring oth­ers along! The ride is more enjoy­able when you have com­pany.” On this site, you’ll find infor­ma­tion about per­sonal and pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment, inspi­ra­tion, diver­sity, men­tor­ing and lead­er­ship among many other things. I’m a per­son with a pas­sion for life, peo­ple, busi­ness, and net­work­ing and this site is an avenue for shar­ing thoughts on these top­ics. I’ll also be shar­ing infor­ma­tion from my speak­ing engage­ments. You will never find any infor­ma­tion from me that is neg­a­tive or destruc­tive on this site. This is my per­sonal promise to you! It is a liv­ing and breath­ing site so it is con­sis­tently evolv­ing and grow­ing. I wel­come your ideas! My per­sonal mes­sage to you is to learn what you can about your­self,  keep grow­ing and share it with oth­ers.  Never allow com­pla­cency to over­come your life…no mat­ter how tempt­ing it may feel.  Life is sim­ply too short to stop grow­ing! What many peo­ple who enjoy life have dis­cov­ered is that con­tin­u­ous growth and enjoy­ment of life are vir­tu­ally syn­ony­mous.  I invite you to become a mem­ber my blog and I promise if you do you will learn some inter­est­ing nuggets that will help you or some­one you know enjoy more out of life.  Also, feel free to leave me a com­ment and let me get to know you as well!
