I’M LAUNCHING A NEW WEBSITE!

launching a new website

It is official. I’ve decided to kick-off 2018 with a side hustle experiment.  When the idea first came to me a few months ago, my initial thought was “hmmm, I like this, but it should probably wait.  Maybe I’ll tackle it sometime next year…summer 2018 might be ideal.” It almost found it’s way onto the list of “someday” projects.  But …

WHY I’M CLIMBING DOWN THE CORPORATE LADDER

the corporate ladder

“Man, what can we do? Think about it…we’re stuck!”    M’s words hit me hard, like a figurative punch to the gut.  I shook my head slightly, lowering it into my chest.  But this time, something had changed.

HOW I OVERCAME A SERIOUS CASE OF FINCON FOMO

FINCON FOMO

I have a confession to make. This past week, I came down with a MAJOR case of FINCON FOMO.  That’s right. This debilitating condition had me in it’s clutches for a few days, until I finally managed to wriggle myself from its grasp. Now, I realize that some of you are unfamiliar with both of these acronyms.  “What the h&%$ …

This is, of course, an ongoing effort.  Over the past year, I’ve made improvements as I’ve become more proficient with the craft of blogging, and running a …
