Are You Pretty Ugly…Like Me?

pretty-ugly

I can remember it like it was yesterday. I was in third grade and had just moved to a new town in the middle of the school year. I was a pretty normal kid. Except maybe for the awkwardly curly hair, buck teeth, braces, thick brown glasses and the trombone I was carrying. Other than that? Totally normal. On my first day at my new school, one Read More

Will Someone Please Punch Me in the Face Already?

punch-me-in-the-face

It just occurred to me. I've never been punched in the face. Not once. Not even close. In fact, the only physical fight I ever got into was in 5th grade. It was an awkward slap-a-thon with another kid over some missing scratch-n-sniff stickers. Not one of my prouder moments. Now, you would think that roaming the planet for 41 years without Read More

It Don’t Mean a Thing if You Live With a Swing(er)

swinger

I used to live with a swinger. Not the golf kind either. We're talking the "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" kind. And by mine I mean spouse and by show I mean doin' it (for lack of a less juvenile way to put it). I should probably take a step back and explain. Recently, I spent a few days on a marketing cruise as one of the speakers. Read More

I’m Scared Shitless, What About You?

scared-shitless

It's show and tell time! For the past two months I have been jumping out of my boots. Excited to show off the painted rock that I found in my backyard. I think it's something pretty awesome. Like a dinosaur fossil. I've been counting the days until I get to share it with you. Planning and scheming. Carefully crafting every word I would say as I Read More

Your Turn…What Do I Suck At?

yourturn

Looking back at a lot of my previous posts I think we can all agree that I haven't been terribly shy in pointing out many of the things that we as humans have been screwing up for years. I suppose it's a gift. Well, today the tables have turned. You see, my friend Hal Elrod has a book coming out next week called "The Miracle Morning." And Read More

One Word that Could Change Your Life

oneword

I usually have an answer for just about everything. But not today. Today I was stumped. Someone I know asked me who I was. Not who I was, but who I was. Know what I mean? I didn't quite know how to answer without taking up the next 3 days to tell my story in excruciating detail. All of the experiences that have come together to shape my life. Read More

I Want It All and I Want It Right Now!

i-want-it-all

I want to be huge. An authority. I want 100,000 or more readers subscribing to my blog. A book on the New York Times Bestseller list. A sold out audience. I want to be able to tweet what I had for lunch and have thousands of people retweet it or ask me how it was. I want to make a difference. I want to help change your life. And in doing so, I Read More
