Got Your Anthem Ready?

I’ve chosen this Jessie J jam I’d never heard of till this morning as my anthem to start the new year: [Do It Like It] “Ain’t Been Done.” Elisa has already professed her disgust, but on the spin bike at 9:30 this morning blasting from the speakers behind me, it totally got me. I even ran up to the instructor after... Read More

10 Reasons Why 2015 Will Be Different

newyear
10) You’ve de-junked and uncluttered. Understanding that your outer world represents your inner world, you’ve opened up the space for creativity and abundance, and light and love. 9) You care less about what other people think. Embracing the quote: “In the end people will judge you anyway, don’t live your life impressing others … live your life impressing yourself!” – Eunice Camacho Infante — was a... Read More

The *2015* 100: Push, Squat, Core Challenge

aristotle
I can never make enough analogies of fitness to real world, or fitness to entrepreneurship. They never lose relevance. The mental mindset to do that which you don’t feel like, or that which sucks, or that which hurts a bit or scares you a little can take you places you never knew you could go.

We busted out the Chat Pack last night after an intense hour or so of the iphone version of Catch Phrase. My brother went to bed, so it was Elisa and I, my sister-in-law, and my niece and nephew, 20 and 17 respectively, at the whim of the deck–some lighthearted, some serious. One question got us all thinking: “What do... Read More

Enjoying family time and a little vacation right up till the ball drops.   I leave you with this: Marinate... Read More

Naked In Public

Elisa dropped me off at the train station naked. Or at least it felt like that for a minute, when I reached for my phone and realized I’d left it plugged into the wall at her parent’s. I started to scramble off the train until I realized we were already moving. We’d been rushing out of the house, as usual.... Read More

Merry Christmahanakwanzika, Y’all!

christmas
My favorite part of Christmas so far was listening to the children squeal with each gift. I was so impressed with the pause: “Wait, who is this from?” They’d each drop the gift and then immediately run over to the gifter nearly tackling them with a bear hug. The above vid shows Finley opening the case for her brand new tablet.... Read More
