Thoughts on Fort Lauderdale
Yesterday, my home airport was attacked. A young man walked into the baggage claim area at FLL and started shooting people.  It’s always awful to see these attacks on TV, but I have to admit – it feels more intense when the attack is close to home.  My business partner and I fly in and ...

The Best Books I Read in 2016

The Best Books I Read in 2016
This past year, I read 27 books. That’s quite a few more than I read in 2015, but honestly, I didn’t find as many that I loved in 2016. Last year, I wrote about 7 books that I loved, this year, I narrowed it down to 5. Historical non-fiction, self-help, science, biography, and business make ...

Year of Action – Health Goals for 2017

After one full year of trying to implement the following daily habits, I’ve learned how to be my most productive self.

My Best Friend

My Best Friend
Why is a dog a man’s best friend? It seems strange. We have cats, birds, and fish as pets, but none of them leave quite the impression on us that dogs do. A dog is there when you need him, quiet when you don’t, and always up for your next move. My family dog, Twister, ...

Things I’m Loving
Here are 9 things under (or just over) $10 I’m loving right now. 1. Oprah Chai Tea I stopped putting sweetener and dairy in my coffee last month, AKA I started drinking black coffee. This was a major challenge. While I still drink a cup of coffee once in a while, one of my new ...

The End of My Love Affair With Coffee

The End of My Love Affair With Coffee
It turns out, I actually don’t love coffee. Truth be told, I don’t even really like it. It feels kind of weird to write that. After all, I’m pretty sure in 2014 my Twitter bio said “full-blown coffee addict”. What the hell happened? Well, I’ll tell you what happened – this post would be pretty ...

“I made a resolution to floss, and I did it. 12:01, January first, BAM! Blood everywhere.” -Michael Scott I had one hell of a January. After a busy Christmas vacation in Central America, I laid out 7 habits that I wanted to establish for myself in the new year. Now that January has come to ...

The Best Books I Read in 2015

The Best Books I Read in 2015
I’m by no means a voracious reader, but I do try to read at least 100 pages every week. This equals roughly a book per month, a rate of reading I’m trying to double in 2016. Goals aside, there were 7 books in particular last year that I thoroughly enjoyed. I had a hard time putting ...

New Year, New Habits

New Year, New Habits
Some people can’t quite seem to relax on vacation. I am not one of those people. After a full week in Costa Rica, I have returned home reinvigorated. I’m excited for 2016. Capitalizing on this feeling of refreshment that coincided with the reigning in of a new year, I have decided to set some lofty goals ...
