The Idea…

I have come up with a pretty cool idea in my personal idea generator this morning (aka my shower :o) ) I am going to brainstorm it with some friends and see if it is feasible, but I think it has potential…I love this part of the process!

On Turning 50

Today is my 50th birthday! I tell my wife that, mentally I still feel I’m about 28, and physically, about 35. I have done a lot in my lifetime so far, but the really cool thing is the feeling I have that I can accomplish so much more in the next decade of my life […]

Quicksand…

As I am typing this, I am watching “The Replacements” on TNT. One of my favorite scenes of the movie deals with Fear, and it is something that can stop entrepreneurs dead in their tracks. Here is the scene, it starts out funny, but gets very deep. Say you’re just starting out with your new […]

Something happened to me recently that caused […]

So here is the gameplan for 2009: 1) Posting the series I had planned on how I got my first rental property. 2) […]

You, the expert!

In my post entitled “On risk, and the fear thereof…” I ask the reader to enter “+Skype +English” into Google to show that there are people out there who sell their expertise translating documents or by teaching a foreign language. This got me thinking, are there other sites or services out there that expedite the […]

No Pain, No Gain…

On April 7 of this year, I stepped on the scale and my heart sunk; I was 236 lbs. Factoring in my height, if you calculated my BMI, I was 1/100 point off of the start of obesity. I was the stereotypical couch potato geek, who’s only form of exercise was typing. Why, you may […]

On risk, and the fear thereof….

I am going to address something I read in an online forum this morning. It was written by someone who read through my blog and posted a comment on it. I write this not as a slam on him/her, but because until quite recently, I thought the same thing. The comment that the poster made […]
