Leftover

Hey all,

Even though the thought of having leftovers seems to have a negative connotation, for most dishes leftovers seem to taste better in my opinion. Maybe it is because the flavor settled or maybe I didn't appreciate the flavor the first time. I'm starting to look at life that way. How many of us would risk it all to find our authentic selves? Meaning how many would give up our current way of life, the money, cars, and job for a chance to discover ourselves? How many would be satisfied with what is leftover after you get rid of glamour around stuff.

It can be difficult to grasp but, we are not our money, we are not the stuff we accumulated, we are not our jobs. We were probably much happier before we accumulated that stuff we thought would enhance our lives and our identity.

It took me a while to figure out that none of that stuff truly made me happy. Instead of being happy with myself I wanted what others had. Now, I am on a spiritual journey to help others through my purpose,  and as I continue to shed the money. my stuff, and ego. I am learning that what is leftover (my true self) is much better than the other versions of me.

Darkside of Entrepreneurship

Hello all,

Today when many think about entreprenuership, they only think about the positive possibilities. They think about the possible potential of income, being your own boss, flexible schedule, and material things. I have learned first hand that those images are products of advertising. Yes there are some entrepreneurs that fit that mode, but there are far more who don't. Personally, I have dealt with depression, loneliness, no money, failure, shame, and doubt. It has taken an incredible amount of energy to stay sane along my journey. I still keep going no matter what because I still believe, yet, it has taken the patience of my spouse, children, and brother to help keep me sane. If you are an entrepreneur Im sure you understand this difficult journey, just remember to talk to others about your issues and to know that you are not alone. To anyone who knows an entrepreur, show them some love, especially if they are successful because they had to endure a hell of a journey!!!!

Unplug

Hello All,

I have been going strong on Social Media since February for 5 to 6 days a week. As much as I love social media and its benefits, I also understand the consequences of not getting away from it from time to time. While I can reach many people by the touch of a button, I can also lose myself with the same touch. Meaning that frequent use of technology can leave me feeling lonely. Take a look at our world, most people can't experience anything without their phone present. We spend more time recording than experiencing things. And since I have children, I want to set the example. I want to eat dinner without someone picking up their phone, I want to enjoy an event without always having to record it. We have conditioned ourselves to be dependent on our digital devices, however, we never fail to recharge our devices but we always neglect to recharge ourselves. I don't want anything controlling my life. So, I must unplug to recharge, re-energize, and regain control of my l…

The Call

Hello All,

One of my favorite movies is The Field of Dreams, where a gentleman hears a calling, that tells him to build a baseball field where the ghost of the great legends of baseball play. I feel like my calling is to inspire people to take charge of their lives and create the life of their desire. The funny thing is I am trying everything I can to reach my audience and I know it hasn't even been 6 month yet but I am itching to make a difference. Similar to the movie, I'm not quite sure what I am building, however it is in my heart to do this and I will keep on moving forward until my vision and mission is accomplished. Anyone else out there feel the call?
