DREAM Big

I just got home from an amazing trip to Beaver Creek, Colorado. 4 days up in the mountains at an amazing resort working on business and working on self with my Mastermind Group. My spirit and energy are feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, reenergized and raring to go. It was a special time up in the Rockies. We had approximately 70 fit…

The BEST of the SUMMMER

“Summertime is always the BEST of what might be.”  Charles Bowden Well, here it is the “end of Summer,” or at least the traditional end with Labor Day weekend coming up next week, and most schools are getting in full swing (or soon will be!). When I saw this quote it encouraged me to look back a bit at this SUMMER…

Are You an “EVERY DAY” Kind of Person?

I recently read Stuart Scott’s book, “Every Day I Fight.” It was undoubtedly one of the best books I have EVER read. I literally cried 3x while reading the book. It’s that good. One of the things I loved in the book is how I felt like I was fighting cancer WITH Stuart. I have read a lot of books…

Enhance Your ENVIRONMENT

It’s August. Can you believe it? I spent part of my Sunday organizing and doing some “Red tape.” I went through my closet and have a huge bag of shirts and shoes that I’m going to give away. A good ole spring cleaning or “purge party.” As much as I don’t enjoy organizing, it always feels so good when you get…

Time to Get Your Pads On!

One of my fondest memories as a young boy was getting my football equipment before the season began. Getting fitted for the shoulder pads and helmet. Getting your thigh pads, knee pads, hip & tailbone pads, rib protector….ahhh, it brings back such great memories. I can still smell the sweat and remember what it’s like taking OFF your helmet the…
