1. Who Are You Listening To?

    As I approach being “retired” for almost a year now I find it interesting that some of the biggest projects I am working on were not even my ideas! The book, podcast, leadership presentations and a game changing collaboration with a couple other law enforcement power players, were not things I w…Read More

  2. What Are We Pursuing?

    As my days bleed into days, weeks to weeks, months to months and my years to years, I find myself wondering, where has my life gone?  How did I forget to pay attention to all the little moments that flew by me while I was busy in pursuit of more things?  Did I really need that shiny new vehicle, d…Read More
