Two weeks ago I wrote a post about how I wanted to really push myself while my family is out of town. Today I met up with them, ending my alone-time.
So, how’d I do? Continue reading Two Weeks Follow Up
Yesterday my wife and three boys left for San Diego to house sit her sister’s house while they’re away (and to have a nice, southern California, lazy, beach summer vacation). I knew the trip was coming, but it wasn’t until earlier this week that I realized that they’d be gone for 16 days before I see them again.
The initial emotion was sadness, but it was quickly followed up by excitement and anticipation. Think about the potential! I can do so much more work! Continue reading What Can You Accomplish In Two Weeks?
I’ve been avoiding the hard questions lately, and I believe it’s holding me back.
What is the one thing I can do such that by doing it makes everything else easier or unnecessary?

This week I was able to attend the inaugural Entrepreneur Simplified Entrecon at Utah Valley University. For a first run, it was pretty well put together, and I thoroughly enjoyed most of it.
Better than that, there were two HUGE opportunites. First, Alan (my business partner) and I got awarded scholarships to ES’s retreat next week, a $3500 value. We get to go for free, so that’s pretty exciting. I know a number of people that have gone through it and said it was lifechanging, so I’m excited to see how it goes.
A few months back as I was in the middle of a 6x per week weight training regimen, there were literally 3 days in a row where this weird thing happened. Continue reading What Is The Right Number of Projects?
At the beginning of this year, our company went through about a 2 month drought after a client bailed on a project that had already started. We were counting on another $30,000 coming into the company between December and February.
It still hasn’t shown up. Continue reading Work/Work Balance
