What You Can Learn Marching In a Parade @TedxHilliard


Let me be totally honest, when I had the chance to march in the 4th of July Parade I was totally gigged. In times like this, when there is something really exciting planned for the next day, I have adrenaline running through me that I just can’t shut off. I’m usually fine the day before,…


Blind spots


Our world is changing. We’re getting more connected and less connected at the same time. Once we start slow down and enjoy life we are forced to, as my dad used to say, “give her some throttle.” More throttle means more RPM’s and eventually more speed.
