FEAR OF FAILURE COLLECTS REJECTS

  Fear of failure is the biggest concern in life. Across the board. For everyone whether they’re aware of it, or not. Heart failure in a hospital brings a Code Red, Code Blue, a code color that brings the crash cart cavalry to start humping and pumping a patient back to life from their flat […]

A PERSONAL BLOG FOR PUBLIC TIMES

  Personal blog speaks to the heart, not the wallet. I see this on blogs all the time, maybe you do too. “LEARN TO SELL, ADVERTISE.” “LEARN TO ATTRACT MORE TRAFFIC.” “LEARN TO CREATE CLASSES TO TEACH OTHERS TO SELL AND ADVERTISE AND ATTRACT MORE TRAFFIC.” It’s all good, but doesn’t it sound like it […]

Either way, when the numbers come in you’ve got to analyze them. Boston must have an auto-dialer working overtime. They’ve come here for 136 sessions amounting to one […]

FACEBOOK SCROLL DOWN LIFE, CONNECT THE DOTS, PT 1

  Connect the dots on a facebook scroll down? Don’t think twice, it’s alright. Start with video of an African sunset. Always a comfort, always a big treat from National Geographic. But an African sunset with zebra and impala? Hell, no. #1. Where are the lions? Aren’t these beasties on their menu? #2. If they’re […]
