Value: Isn’t there more to life?


Work. Paycheck. Spend some. Save a little…maybe. Work. Paycheck. Spend some. Save a little…maybe. Work. Paycheck. Spend some. Save a little…maybe. Is it any wonder that a recent poll showed that the majority of the American workforce is disengaged. This is no way to live. It’s certainly not something that I want. It’s definitely not…


The 3 Things That I Learned From Being Interviewed


Two weeks ago my childhood home’s newspaper gave me the opportunity to be interviewed, ┬áIt was an awkward strange but comfortable feeling. This is the paper that I grew up reading. That is, on the rare occasion that I read anything. It always had the latest sports information and some interesting articles on familiar faces….
