The other night I posted a video on my personal Facebook page. It was an emotional video about my sadness and regret for the way I treated one of my ex-girlfriends after I got out of prison.

I had a great talk with a friend the other night about our businesses, and the goals we want to accomplish in our lives both personally, and professionally. And one of the things that really stood out in our talk was the topic of our past. Both of us have what some might call “a colorful past” and have been through some things that most people have not.

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve left home to clear my head and reconnect with a great friend. In the time since, I’ve done a lot of work out in the hot sun and have had plenty of time to think about some things that were on my mind. Read more
I’ve been away from home for a couple days now. I’ve been able to capitalize and build on the clarity that I mentioned in my last blog post. I’m spending time with one of my best friends and his wife, and they’re wonderful people. He’s an amazing person, and has always been one of the nicest people I’ve ever known, and this visit is definitely something that I’ve needed. Read more

Hello world. This article is a reboot that I posted long ago while involved in a different venture. I think it’s still important and extremely relevant.

Maybe you own your own business, or maybe you’ve been chosen by your employer to telecommute. Being in this position is unlike anything else the typical workforce has to offer. Read more
