Best Relationship Advice Ever: Own Your Shiz

IMG_2070 (1)
I have this one client who studies psychology. So as I boss him around the gym, we jam out on all things personal development and relationships. “At least I own my shit!” is a constant phrase we bounce back and forth. He, like me, takes pride in the fact that he knows when he’s being ridiculous. I often use the... Read More

Growth & Grief: Two sides of the same coin

DCIM103GOPRO
I know growth and grief seem like an odd couple of sorts, but they come more hand-in-hand than I think we give ourselves time to ponder. We’re all on a trajectory towards growth whether we realize it or not. As a part of the universe that is constantly expanding, we are along for the ride, digging in our heels, running... Read More

I’ve been reading emails, listening to podcasts and writing posts (for other sites) today and everything keeps coming back to visualization. Something must be in the water. I loved this Unmistakable Creative podcast with sport psych coach, masterful mindset, dude, Graham Betchart. Brother is speaking my language;) I think sports are such a great way into visualization.

3-Minute Marinade: Choo Choo Soul edition

Sleeping on the job!
I’ve been on the go since 6AM this morning, and it’s nearing midnight here in Virginia where I’m visiting family this weekend. So this will be ultra-brief, but jammed packed. I left Brooklyn this morning at 10:30 AM after working (and working out) at the crack. When Elisa gave me these (below) road trip snacks, I almost cried. To me,... Read More
