is KEY! In a world of instant gratification, it can be challenging to be consistent when you feel like nothing is happening and results aren't coming.

Most business advisors help edit your story. We are with you writing the story! crossnw

was dope. This was the highlight of the trip for me. I got to snowboard. I fell a few timesand my body is hurting today but it was all worth it. From Schoolcraft to Ski slopes.

In other news I was playing cod with the homies yesterday and there was a dude on the other team that played like a complete 🤡. Younger me would've sent him a nice message but I let it go We weren't too bad as a team on the sticks either 👀

The idea is simple. It's Google meets LinkedIn. You search for what you want – an expert, a paper, a piece of equipment, a business or charity partner. You email the person via , then you’re off!

No Such Thing as a ‘Good Job…’ That you can get fired from!

One day the economy crashed and I watched a ton of respectful people get laid off, which was devastating. I also watched former MVPs, in their respective sports, get cut (or fired) from a team after taking a step back in production. We’ve all seen winning coaches get fired in the midst of turning around franchises. At any moment, your company can downsize or outsource and that same lifestyle you once had can be taken away in an instant. This quote isn’t only for entrepreneurs. This quote is to prepare yourself. Unfortunately all good things come to an end at some point, so they say. That doesn’t have to be for you or anyone else. I’m not here to give financial advice, but to say the biggest risk you can take, is banking on one job (or income) that can replace you in a heart beat. No matter how much people get paid, there’s always a what’s next. What’s next after sports, what’s next for retirement, what’s next after a big win or a big loss? What’s next?

A helpful tool for anyone seeking to go to the next level. Seek out respected people in your passion (not your current field if it’s not your passion). For young people, seek internships with who you aspire to be like, not who your parents want you to be like. And if you can’t get them, try those on the level down from there (try local businesses) and work your way up. To older people, with big money and want to do something different, seek out that CEO of that big time company that does what you are interested in. Buy lunch and pick her or his brain. If you do that twice a month, that would be 24 total CEOs in a year. If you can’t get the CEO get the Vice President, the CFO or work your way up by company size. Then take what you’ve learned and strategically map out your next step for your life.  Warren Buffet once said “Do not save what is left after spending; instead spend what is left after saving.”

“No such thing as a ‘good job’ that you can get fired from.”

Motherhood is consuming. It crashes in like a massive tidal wave, completely destroying weak structures of you that once stood. The water smooths and fills all the cracks and emptiness in a single sweeping motion. To be birthed anew alongside your baby, a top the leftover foundation she before children laid.

Into this wild Abyss
The womb of Nature, and perhaps her grave —
Of neither sea, nor shore, nor air, nor fire,
But all these in their pregnant causes mixed
Confusedly, and which thus must ever fight,
Unless the Almighty Maker them ordain
His dark materials to create more worlds, —
Into this wild Abyss the wary Fiend
Stood on the brink of Hell and looked a while,
Pondering his voyage; for no narrow frith
He had to cross.
—  John Milton (excerpted from Paradise Lost)

i’m sorry

It is with the deepest sympathy that I write these words. It wasn’t my intention to hurt you. It wasn’t my intention to disregard your heart and allow my selfishness to prevail. Although there has been the passage of time the remorse and regret still rear their heads. You deserved better from me. I know I probably don’t have grounds to ask this but I am asking for forgiveness. Asking you to not hold it to my heart because I really do love you. I only want you to be happy. I only want was best for you and one day I want to be that for you again. When you look at me I want you to be proud to have me with you. I want you to smile again at the look I get in my eyes when I’m staring at you, admiring your beauty. I want you to love me again, unashamed and stronger. Please forgive me for failing us. I need you.

(a conversation with my reflection)


Sometimes you have to speak to yourself and acknowledge when you have made mistakes. Growth is internal and responsibility is the beginning of acceptance.
