The joy of curious anticipation

What would happen if we kept our dreams, worked our dreams, sought after our dreams, and no one was around to tell us we didn’t have a shot, that there was no way. 

Sawyer (9) and I are cranking this morning!

Think about all the worthless crap you learned growing up in school. Think about all the things you WISH you would have been taught when you found yourself in the real world one day. 

This “real life” knowledge is so valuable, and 100% MISSED by the school system. 

Young minds are often the most open minds. Pour into their creativity & energy!

I’m not sure there is anything more important than pouring into the next generation. I don’t know how else to look at it other than we all have a responsibility to teach, train, and equip today’s youth. 

Invest in the next generation, they’re gonna be running things soon

Nowadays I work from home most of the time.  As an entrepreneur and author, I’ve always got several things going on.  I like it that way, keeps my mind sharp and my ego in check.

Time goes by quick! Make sure and get out there and hold on tight!

It’s a fast moving train you know; you need to grab on tight and don’t let go. It’ll be scary sometimes, exhilarating others, and painful as well.  Don’t let go. No matter what, Don’t let go.  Hold on to the little moments with those you love. Embrace the simple joys, the quiet moments, the smiles, […]

Take time to develop relationships that last.

Relationships are hard work. Really hard work. Investments really. No shortcuts, no silver bullets, no love at first sight. Relationships are little delicate slow growing trees. They need to be tended to, they need to be watered. They need to be encouraged and cared for in order to grow. Even with all the work, sometimes […]

Invest in the future.

Invest in YOUR future. I don’t mean, “save money, diversify your portfolio, and create multiple streams of income.” (however really; freaking do those things for sure.) I mean, invest in your future by the things you do. There is nothing more value to you, nothing as limited, nothing as precious as your time. How do […]

Actually having teenagers doesn’t suck.

I’m not saying it’s not going to be hard though. “I freaking can’t WAIT until my kids are out of the house” she said with a serious look, the kind of look that you know you shouldn’t question. It was the same response I’ve gotten many times. Here’s another one, “How old are your kids?” […]

They can take everything from you.

Everything. They can steal, trick, borrow, beg, and take it all. Well, not everything. They can’t steal your memories. The time you share with friends and family, the time you invest in your kids and enjoy with your spouse. That time, those memories, are yours forever. No one can take them from you. Those memories […]
