How to get ahead

    There are so many ways to get ahead and one of the most important is often times overlooked: sacrifice your Friday nights and sacrifice your weekends.  Take a long look in the mirror and ask yourself how you’re spending your weekend.  Most people will just want to...

The Struggle is Real

Having 2 kids now, the question that is always asked is have you been getting any sleep? Luckily, I have an amazing wife who lets me sleep so I’m rested for work, but we do have a routine so she gets sleep too. The next question asked is how...

Be Adaptable!

My wife will hate me for posting this picture of her haha. When my wife and I were in the hospital last week, due to my wife being induced, I had a grand plan that would make everything work perfectly.  During the birth of our first child, my wife...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Today is the one day out of the year that we truly sit down and give thanks of everything we are appreciative of.  This year my wife and I welcomed a new baby girl into this world, Zoë Jade, and our second daughter, Blair Olivia, turned...

On the last blog post, I discussed effective time management and creating a schedule.  This post is a caveat.  Having a “wing-it” approach isn’t going to work if you want to succeed.  You might be able to make it work for that one instance to get by, but in...

Effective Time Management

As I have grown up, I have realized how difficult and important effective time management is.  I used to “wing it” or “go with the flow”, but in order to get ahead in life I realized I couldn’t do that anymore.  I’ve started with to-do lists, which is nice...

Be the Difference

I am a true advocate of being the difference you want to see in the world.  You want people to quit complaining so much? Start with yourself! Stop complaining about everything! You wish the world was more sincere?  Start with your own random acts of kindness! You wish the...
