Job Offer? Quick Check For "Fit"

Pop quiz!

How do you determine if a job is a good fit for you?

I’ll give you the answer in a moment. But first, a story:

"Daddy, I wish we were rich."

My son said this to me when we were walking out to the car after having dinner at a local place. As we kept walking to the car I started to ask him questions and he would respond.

A Pinch of Courage Makes Life More Fun

When I was a child, I rode my bicycle over the flat neighborhoods of Savannah, Georgia. I was Annie Oakley on my faithful horse. My girlfriend and I cycled together to ballet classes that ended at dusk. On the way home, we sped past a house shrouded with hanging moss. We were sure it was haunted. We’d both spotted a ghostlike flicker in the window!…

Simple Survey About Creating Content Online

Just having a great website isn’t enough.

In this new world of information, you need to be creating content. Not just a static page on your website, but content that is constantly fresh. Just think: if a restaurant only ordered fresh food on the first of the month, customers would stop coming pretty quickly. Who wants a sandwich from two weeks ago?

It’s around us all the time – from the person who drags their sleepy body out of bed at 5am to workout before going into the office to the person who works 3 jobs just to feed their family – but lots of times we don’t even notice it. When we do though, it is a thing of beauty.



I had the opportunity to be a coach for my daughter’s traveling softball team last summer. It was a fairly young travel team, so, in the beginning of the year they… Continue

This is to Serve as My Two Week Notice

These words were the beginning of a new journey in my life one year ago.  

I was a single dad and working at the job I had spent the last 12 years of my life.  I was tired of dealing with things that I had been putting up with for way too long.  I was tired of working 12+ hour shifts, four days a week and missing time with my kiddo.  I was tired of feeling trapped and like I had no future.  I was simply tired.
