The beginnings of anything can be difficult.
It doesn’t matter if it’s going back to school, starting over in a career, moving to a new city, or even small events like writing a blog or breaking into a new exercise routine.
It feels new and different and that can get uncomfortable. Or even awkward.
It’s so hard to create new habits and let go of old ones. The old habits are ingrained into our brains and bodies. Read More
A few weeks ago, I took time off. I hit the road for 9 days and didn’t have much cell phone service for most of the journey. It really cut me off from the outside world and forced me to be present. It’s also the longest amount of time off I’ve had in almost 2 years.
Which also means I didn’t do anything work related including taking 2 weeks off from blogging. And last week was a little bit more hurried since I was going out of town again! Read More

I recently took an entire week off from work to hit the road and go off and sight see and sort of disconnect from everything. I ended up really disconnecting from everything cause I had awful cell phone service, all the way till Nebraska.

What started out as a simple way to grow a social media following and increase visibility to my website and work has transformed into an ongoing personal project. Read More
One awesome thing about working for yourself is that you have the capability to be somewhat location independent.

Take for instance, right now. I am currently in Portland, Oregon having driven down last night to catch a show at the Hawthorne Theatre. I stayed the night in town and am now writing this in my hotel room. Read More
Okay so let me start off by saying that yes, I did not post anything last weekend.
It was the first (and only so far) time that I had missed one since I started the thing a year ago. Yes, on my one year “blogaversary” I skipped a blog post. It was not an ironic statement. I did not have access to a computer nor did I have enough phone battery to knock one out.
Plus, it probably would’ve been rushed or half assed or cranky because I was sitting in very hot heat the entire time. And fair warning, today’s post will be a little bit more on the personal side. Read More
