Ambition: Blessing and a curse

The interesting thing about ambition is it can end up being a double edged sword. Something that calls to you and yet strikes back when you commit yourself to it. Countless hours spent on projects that go unnoticed and a mountain of failures that seemingly amount to nothing. I like to think I'm ambitious because [...]

A World Unplugged: At odds with creativity?

I’ve recently started a short adventure that will last roughly two months. I jumped out of the sates and have landed in Thailand prior to an adventure through India. Something that has become an issue recently is the wifi in my building. It should be fixed in the next day or two, but it’s brought [...]

Creative in Combat: Lessons from a war zone

First I want to say in no way am I intending to justify conflict or support any specific political agendas.

Ready or Not!

I've been there and I'm sure many of you have been as well. We get to thinking about something we'd like to do or telling someone about the new idea or an ambition we have, then ... nothing. We get wrapped up by our daily lives and almost as soon as we think it up [...]

The Other Side of Fear

What would you do if you weren't afraid? It wasn't that long ago I was sitting at my desk in corporate America. Begrudgingly questioning how I could possibly be wanting to quit. I had finally "made it". Yet there I was contemplating the unthinkable. I wanted to leave my job to start my own business [...]
