The Best Way To Quit Smoking Is To…

I just read a great story about Bob Stupak. To give you a little intro on Bob Stupak: Stupak was a “casino magnate, world-record motorcycle racer, professional poker player, mayoral candidate and Harlem Globetrotter for a day”. And this list is not, by any means, exhaustive. Anyways, Stupak decided to quit smoking at one point …

You Get What You Pray For (As Long As…)

At the suggestion of a friend, I recently started listening to an audio-book called “Outwitting The Devil”, by Napoleon Hill. To summarize it briefly: It was written in an interview style, where Napoleon Hill is interviewing the Devil. The purpose of the interview is to make the Devil expose all his dirty tricks as to …

The 25,000 Dollar Idea

Today, I was listening to “Lead The Field” by Earl Nightingale. In the second to last chapter, he told a story that had a profound impact on me. But, before I get into the story, here’s why it had such an impact. The main lesson from the story is EASY. It is easy to apply. …

A Simple Email That Turned Into $2000

Have you ever written a 79 word email that turned into $2000? I did. Now, I never guessed it would’ve turned into that, but here’s what happened: I was going through my past invoices, and noticed a customer that I hadn’t heard from in a few months. He’s not my biggest customer, but his orders …

Be A Leader At Any Age

“I’ll do it!” — Every Wednesday morning I have a networking meeting. At each meeting, there is a 5 minute space of time that’s left to continuing education. The purpose of this education slot is for the “education coordinator” to give tips and tricks for networking. Basically, his job is to help members learn how …

I Feel Un-F*cking-Stoppable Today

I’ve noticed my mental stamina decreasing over the past few weeks. Maybe I’ve been getting burned out from working a lot. Maybe it’s my body telling me to take a break. No matter what the cause is, it’s definitely just an excuse. Nothing more. Since I’ve noticed my mood plummet on certain days, I wanted …

People Without Paid Positions At Panera

I go to Panera Bread a couple of times per week during lunch time to relax and get some work done. It’s also a great place to just kind of listen in to what’s happening in corporate america. There are an endless supply of business people that go there for lunch. It’s packed with suits …

Nintendo Must’ve Been Consulted By Earl Nightingale

Nintendo recently released a bunch of new “build-and-play” cardboard toys for their Nintendo Switch. These take me back to my childhood with k’nex and legos. I always enjoyed toys that required putting all the parts together to complete the project. But all that’s beside the point… Back to Nintendo: Their decision to release these cardboard …

Death By Proximity And Price

Would you travel across the country just to get a yearly physical? Most likely, you wouldn’t. However, what if you had a life-threatening heart disease, and the only doctor that could fix it was across the globe. Would you make that trip? Surely, you would. Unless you want to die, for some reason… What’s my …

Exposing My Weaknesses

I’m very weak. It’s true… In particular ways, my body is weak. Even though I’ve been strength training for a few years now, I have certain movements that my body just can’t perform optimally. I know exactly why, too. It’s because I never train these particular movements. So, it makes total sense as to why, …
