1. Permission to Live

    This past week I got to spend time with my Grandfather as he nears his 93rd birthday and the end of his time here. I appreciated the short conversations we had over the week and wanted him to know the family was in good hands. We can look after one another and that it was ok if he wanted to go to th…Read More

  2. Perfectly Imperfect

    I’m not a perfect husband, father, son, brother, business partner or friend. In fact, I am far from perfect in almost every area of my life every day. However, what I am good at is seeing my imperfections for what they truly are, an opportunity to improve and get better. I don’t let my imperfect…Read More

  3. Keep Showing Up!

    We are almost through the first quarter of the year and by now many have forgotten their New Year’s goals or resolutions. Many have settled back into the same routines and habits that left them wanting more just a few months ago. Many of us get discouraged when the results don’t immediately make…Read More

  4. Purpose of Pain?

    Pain is our notification that we have lost something important in our lives. It could be a portion of our health or wellness, the loss of someone special, the job we always wanted, a relationship we neglected, a sporting event we had committed everything to, or even a reminder we have lost sight of …Read More

Everyone is “grinding” away at their days, working hard, getting up early, staying up late and touting the struggle of the process. We can work our…Read More

    This week I was fortunate to spend 45 minutes with a young man working on his mma skills and discussing life in between our drills. He spoke honestly about his life and his struggles and allowed me to share with him some of my experiences and perspective. He’s a young man that sadly feels many hav…Read More

  7. Just Decide

    I was asked this week about what kind of courses I had taken to learn about leadership and coaching. While I do love learning, reading and following great people. There was no specific class I took that made me want to help others. There was no class that taught me what to say to make others believe…Read More

  8. When Good People Go Silent

    I had an interesting conversation with some friends the other day and one of the topics that got me thinking was about the negativity in our world, our media and even in our social media. Several people including, I, proudly proclaimed that we did not watch the news or follow much media coverage as …Read More

  9. Passion vs Calling

    This week I was blessed to have been posed with this question from a longtime friend:  Am I pursuing my passions or is this a calling?  I was caught off guard by the question and had to take a moment to come up with my response. Passions are emotions which can come and go. They can burn intense fo…Read More

  10. Quit Looking for Perfect!

    We are so concerned with getting things right or perfect that we spend far too much time analyzing and gathering data, information and sometimes our courage. It’s easy to dismiss our lack of action because we are still researching the best or perfect way to do something. We find a video or article…Read More
