I don’t know if you had any trick or treaters in your house or at the door last night but in case you missed out, here’s your very own lucky bag of freebies to help you and your business this week.

Over at Michael Hyatt’s site I found this excellent podcast on finding the treasures in the trials in your life.

In this episode you will discover:

• Three questions you shouldn’t ask yourself when you face trials. These are toxic.
• Four gifts hiding in the challenges we face.
• One fundamental life skill that we usually only learn in the midst of adversity.

Really useful stuff for us all:
