Success: Money, freedom and fulfillment

The interesting thing about success is there are a number of definitions and they’re all subjective, but that doesn't mean they're incorrect. It’s not uncommon for people to reference the amount of money you’re making as a gauge for how successful you are.  However, in my experience, money is a secondary component of being successful.

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 [...]

Life and Death In The Fast Lane

This one doesn't have any pictures. Use your mind. I believe it was sometime in 2008 or 2009. I hadn't anticipated watching someone die that day. Especially not someone many years younger than me. As if that matters. I certainly hadn't anticipated my military experience being the topic of brief, though relevant discussion. I had [...]

Slow and Steady Wins the Race The story about the hare and the tortoise, or rabbit and turtle to some, is familiar too many if not all of us. That's for good reason! As kids we hear these types of stories to prepare us for the future. However, these messages can be overlooked as we [...]

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 [...]

Patience in a world of chaos

Have you ever found yourself feeling like you're getting nowhere fast? Welcome to the party! It's about as common a feeling as any. Especially in todays world of instant gratification. Progress Over Perfection One of the main issues I run into myself is competing interests between progress and perfection. It's natural to want to create [...]
